The San Francisco Chapter of The Links, Incorporated in support of our Health and Human Services programming, and as co-presenters with the NorcalMLK Foundation Health Festival and Liberation Film Festival, is going to bring "Resilience: The Biology of Stress & The Science of Hope” to MLKDAY 2018 with a FREE screening at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts on Monday, January 15, 2018.  Resilience is the latest film from documentary director-producer James Redford and producer-writer-director Karen Pritzker. It features the work of Dr. Nadine Burke Harris – Founder and CEO of the Center for Youth Wellness and Founding Physician of the Bayview Child Health Center. The film explores the link between Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs),a study done in partnership between Kaiser Permanente and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and lifelong health.  After the screening we will have a panel discussion and Q&A with the director and "Mental Health Partners" from the community, moderated by Belva Davis, Bay Area Emmy Award winning journalist.
Confirmed panelists to date include:  • James Redford, Director and Producer of Resilience • Lisa Gutierrez-Wang, Ph.D., Director of Clinical Programs, Center for Youth Wellness • Lauran Cherry, Educational Leadership Coach, Alameda Department of Education
This effort is focused on health advocacy relative to behavioral health and the immediate access needs of the Bay Area Community. We will highlight the ways in which the community is supported through preventative behavioral health community benefit programs and mental health literacy to raise awareness on these matters.
Our ultimate goal is that the audience will walk away with a deeper understanding of how ACEs impact them and their family members, and that they will know how to access resources that can support them in the healing process.
