On June 7th youngballymun are hosting a public screening of ‘Resilience’ in collaboration with Irish Attachment in Action and the Axis Arts Centre. This film explores the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences and how early interventions can have huge reductions in both physical and mental health problems later in life.
We hope that the showing of this film in Ballymun will stimulate further dialogue about the importance of Early intervention and the role that both statutory, community and voluntary organisations play.

A light lunch will be available at 12 noon followed by the film at 12.30pm

with a panel discussion afterwards at 1.30pm – 2.00pm
Please RSVP by Friday 1st June

“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.” [KPJR Films]
