Parents, educators and community members are invited to a free public viewing of the documentary SCREENAGERS: The Next Chapter, Uncovering Skills for Stress Resistance on February 19, 2020, at 7 p.m. at Eastern Mennonite School. The film explores the impact of social media and other screen time on teens’ mental health.
The movie is a follow up to SCREENAGERS: Growing up in the Digital Age, a 2016 award-winning documentary by Delany Ruston, MD. The film was among the first to explore the impact of screen technology on kids and offered parents and families solutions. SCREENAGERS: The Next Chapter includes stories with insights from brain researchers, psychologists, and thought leaders that reveal evidence-based ways to support mental wellness among our youth in a digital age.
