Promoting youth mental health was an important topic before the pandemic.  It is even more important as we enter the pandemic’s 4th wave.

On Sept 1 at 7:15 PM, we are hosting an outdoor screening of @ConnectingTheDotsFilm from award-winning filmmaker Noemi Weis.  With heartfelt poignant stories of lived experience, the film exclusively showcases young voices breaking barriers surrounding youth mental health. Through highly cinematic and character-driven storytelling, Connecting the Dots is emotional, reflective and hopeful. Our future leaders are speaking up. It’s time to listen.

Following the film, future local leaders will lead a short discussion about the how film’s message applies in Carleton Place.

This event is jointly presented by Open Doors for Lanark Children & Youth, the Carleton Place Youth Centre, Planet Youth Lanark County and the Town of Carleton Place.

To respect public health guidelines, the screening will take place on Sept 1 from starting at 7:15 PM at the Carleton Place Farmers Market.  We must limit attendance to a maximum of 100 attendees.  Please register via Eventbrite. Please bring your own chairs.
