Event description

Description

The Academy, a programme from the Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland (the ALLIANCE), and Sanctuary Housing Association invite you to join them for a screening of 'Resilience'.

Experiences in childhood can affect your health as an adult. Join us for the documentary ‘Resilience: The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope’ to explore these links.

This is an hour-long ground-breaking documentary looking at the links between Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and poorer life outcomes. It chronicles the beginnings of a national movement to prevent childhood trauma, treat Toxic Stress, and help the next generation to break the cycle of adversity and improve future wellbeing.

The film will be followed by a play, “Catherine’s Way” by local playwright John Paul McBride, that addresses how experiences in childhood affected his sister’s life.

The event will be chaired by Mary Glasgow, Chief Executive of Children 1st. Panel members include: Gerry Mitchell, Community Links Practitioner, the ALLIANCE, Dr Maria Duffy, GP at The Peat Road Medical Practice and John Paul McBride, local playwright.

Soup and sandwiches will be provided and opportunity for discussion and socialising.
