On behalf of the Saanich Child and Youth Mental Health and Substance Use Collaborative, I am pleased to forward you information for an upcoming event.
Screenagers Movie: Growing Up in the Digital Age, A Documentary.
When: Oct. 12th, 2016 from 7pm-9pm
Where: Saanichton Bible Fellowship
Cost: $5 per individual, or $10 per family
The intent of this evening is to support our students and families in opening a dialogue around screen time and its impact on development and mental well-being. In addition to the movie, there will be a facilitator who will, for those interested, help guide discussion after the viewing. I have attached a poster for the event, registration and ticket purchasing links are included. Parents are encouraged to attend with their children. This link also provides a viewing of a trailer for the documentary. Below is a blurb for Screenagers:
Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including her own, to explore struggles over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction. Through stories and surprising insights from authors, psychologists, and brain scientists, the SCREENAGERS movie reveals how tech time impacts kids’ development and offers solutions on how adults can empower their kids to best navigate the digital world to find balance.
SCREENAGERS addresses the most pervasive parenting issue of our time head on—depicting teen struggles over social media, video games and internet addiction. The film empowers kids to best navigate the digital world and provides practical resources to help them do it.
SCREENAGERs is targeted towards students in Grade 5 and up, and their parents, guardians and caregivers.
