Special Speaker Series Event Invitation: Movie and discussion!

How can we help stop cycles of trauma in our community?

A very robust study shows that experiencing multiple Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) can predict the likelihood of someone having serious health conditions later in life, including heart disease, obesity, and depression.

We will screen the documentary, Resilience: The biology of stress and the science of hope which talks about how ACEs can lead to illness and showcases some approaches people are taking to fight back. A panel discussion led by experts in community will bring it home to Ottawa, and explore ways people like you can be part of building resilience.
