Anxiety is on the rise. Today's youth are more stressed and more depressed than ever before. But there is hope! Join ParentMap for the Seattle premiere of "Screenagers: Next Chapter," the second film in the groundbreaking documentary series. Learn strategies and solutions to help your screen-obsessed teen survive and thrive in a digital world.
Teens and tweens are welcome to attend; recommended for ages 10 and older.
From the director of the award-winning documentary "Screenagers: Growing Up in the Digital Age" comes "Screenagers: Next Chapter," which explores solutions for improved adolescent well-being in the digital age.
Filmmaker and physician Delaney Ruston uses a personal lens and professional eye to help parents flip the script on stress, anxiety and depression. The film follows Delaney as she suddenly finds herself at a loss when it comes to helping her own teens as they struggle with their emotional well-being. Ruston sets out to uncover how we understand these challenges in our current screen-saturated society and how we as parents and schools empower teens with skills to overcome mental health challenges and build emotional agility, communication savvy and stress resilience.
Viewers will witness Delaney as she finds her way from ineffective parenting to much-improved strategies. Other personal stories of families from an array of backgrounds and with a spectrum of emotional challenges give viewers hope. Observe approaches in schools that provide strategies relevant beyond the classroom setting. Interwoven into the stories are surprising insights from brain researchers, psychologists and thought-leaders that reveal evidence-based ways to support mental wellness in our youth.
Stick around after the screening for a Q&A discussion with filmmaker Dr. Delaney Ruston.
