"Resilience" Film Screening (Baxter YMCA)

Location: Baxter YMCA

7900 Shelby Street
Indianapolis, IN

Can a biological connection brought on by abuse and neglect trigger hormones in childhood, greatly increasing the risk of chronic disease, addiction, homelessness, violence or an early death?

Some researchers believe so, and that is the subject of the documentary “Resilience: The Biology of Stress & The Science of Hope.” The one-hour film delves into the science of adverse childhood experiences and the birth of a new movement to treat and prevent toxic stress, which is thought to be one of the leading causes of everything from heart disease, to substance abuse and depression. Experts say extremely stressful experiences in childhood can alter brain development and have lifelong effects on health and behavior.

Experts will be on hand to guide discussion and answer questions about how their roles intersect with some of the topics and issues raised in the documentary.

The FREE film screening will take place at the Baxter YMCA.  No registration needed. Beverages and snacks will be provided. Questions? Email
