Connecting the Dots

A Documentary Screening and Community Conversation

On June 23rd, 2022, we hosted an event to open the dialogue and help shine a light on the youth mental health crisis. A screening of Connecting the Dots: A Global Conversation About Youth Mental Health was followed by a panel discussion with the Canadian filmmaker Noemí Weis and local mental health advocates.

Thank-you to all who attended!

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.

Get Involved: Sponsorship Opportunities

The Connecting the Dots film screening event has passed, however we have other exciting sponsorship opportunities planned for the upcoming year, including Flood: The Overdose Epidemic in Canada, which will take place in Huntsville Ontario on August 31, 2022.
