Documentary on stress to play Tuesday

May 21, 2018

The Fairfield Arts & Convention Center will host a documentary Tuesday called “Resilience: The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope.”

The film lasts from 5-6:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

“Resilience” explores the science behind adverse childhood experiences. It not only explains how exposure to trauma affects a child’s brain, but also demonstrates how this toxic stress increases children’s overall risk of developing diseases, engaging in risky behavior, facing jail time, and experiencing early death.

Throughout the film, the audience sees the movement that has begun within various sectors to treat toxic stress as a public health crisis, which has led to greater efforts in addressing and combating its adverse effects.

The event is being hosted by the Children’s Mental Health & Wellbeing Collaborative. For more information, contact Julie Dalrymple at jdalrymple@pcaiowa.org.
