Come join us for a free community screening of The Kids We Lose - A Documentary Film followed by a panel discussion!

About this Event

The Kids We Lose is a 90-minute documentary film about the human side of being a child or student with behavioral challenges, and the struggles faced by parents, educators, staff in facilities, mental health clinicians, and law enforcement professionals in trying to ensure that these kids receive the help they need. The Kids We Lose also exposes the often brutal, inhumane ways in which kids with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges are treated in schools, inpatient psychiatry units, residential facilities, and prisons. Their hopelessness, misery, and frustration are palpable. The human toll is hard to fathom. But these are also the most expensive kids in our society. Doing the wrong thing costs a fortune. When we don’t help our most vulnerable kids, we all lose.

And it’s all so counterproductive and unnecessary.

The Kids We Lose is not primarily about how to solve the problem. It is intended to heighten awareness of the problem and galvanize people to change things for the better.
