Movie Poster for Connecting the Dots features young people on a school bus viewed from behind

An encore showing of the film "Connecting the Dots" will take place on Tuesday, June 13, at the Waccamaw Library. The screening begins at 6 p.m. and is free and open to the public. It will be followed by a panel discussion on mental health in our community. Food will be served.

"Connecting the Dots" is the first feature documentary of its kind to offer a raw and intimate look at mental health in youth from a global perspective. 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. 

Questions from the audience will be welcome during the panel discussion. Panelists include mental health professionals: Probate Judge Leigh Boan, Raphael Carr, Aixa Rodriguez-Mariani and Liz Attias. Dr. Leslie Bessellieu will moderate.
