Connecting the Dots

A Documentary Screening and Community Conversation

You’re invited to engage in important dialogue and help shine a light on the youth mental health crisis. Join us for a screening of Connecting the Dots, followed by a panel discussion with the Canadian filmmaker and local mental health advocates.

About the Documentary

Connecting the Dots is the first feature documentary of its kind to offer a raw and intimate look at youth mental health from a global perspective. With heart-felt poignant stories of lived experience, the film exclusively showcases young voices breaking barriers surrounding youth mental health. Through highly cinematic and character driven storytelling, Connecting the Dots is emotional, reflective and hopeful. Our future leaders are speaking up. It’s time to listen.
