About the film...
Researchers have recently discovered a dangerous biological syndrome caused by abuse and neglect during childhood. As the new documentary Resilience reveals, toxic stress can trigger hormones that wreak havoc on the brains and bodies of children, putting them at a greater risk for disease, homelessness, prison time, and early death. While the broader impacts of poverty worsen the risk, no segment of society is immune. Resilience, however, also chronicles the dawn of a movement that is determined to fight back. Trailblazers in pediatrics, education, and social welfare are using cutting-edge science and field-tested therapies to protect children from the insidious effects of toxic stress—and the dark legacy of a childhood that no child would choose.

The purpose of the film screening is to raise awareness so that we can all make a difference to the lives of those that have been affected by Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and have an understanding that impacts our work and practice. Please support this cause if you are able to do so.

The target of £900 for a licence that will allow official FREE showings of the film at multiple locations across Cumbria has been achieved.

We are now raising funds towards the cost of screening the RESILIENCE film FREE across CUMBRIA

Look how the Resilience film has spread across Scotland in 2017 - Will you join us in making this happen in Cumbria?
