Teen Wellness Film Series presents: The Mask You Live In, Mar. 12

The Mask You Live In follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America’s narrow definition of masculinity. Research shows that, compared to girls, boys in the U.S. are more likely to be diagnosed with a behavior disorder, prescribed stimulant medications, fail out of school, binge drink, commit a violent crime, and/or take their own lives. Through interviews with youth program leaders, psychologists, sociologists, and candid male middle schoolers, filmmaker Jennifer Siebel Newsom examines the problems caused by societal expectations of male stoicism.

The screening will be followed by an in-depth panel discussion featuring:
Ashanti Branch, Founder and Executive Director, Ever Forward Club
Charis Denison, Youth Advocate and Health Educator, Prajna Consulting
Adrian Vasquez, Student, Youth Facilitator
BJ Wasserman, Inside Circle Foundation
Deb Blum, Family Communications Consultant; Co-Founder/Director, Redwood Parents Connect
