Connecting The Dots: special Northern Beaches screenings of youth mental health support film

Community Capital Foundation, an initiative by Northern Beaches organisation Community Care Northern Beaches, will host a screening next month of the documentary Connecting the Dots, followed by panel discussions, to examine how we can collectively improve youth mental health in 2022.

The award-winning documentary by director Noemí Weis, which has screened at numerous international film festivals to favourable plaudits.

The film offers a raw and intimate look at youth mental health from a global perspective. With heart-felt poignant stories of lived experience, the film showcases young voices from around the world breaking barriers surrounding youth mental health.

“Through highly cinematic and character-driven storytelling, Connecting the Dots is emotional, reflective and hopeful. Our young leaders are speaking up. It’s time to listen,” the film literature states.

The screening has been organised in partnership with Street Work, One Eighty, Burdekin, Headspace, Kyds and Avalon Youth Hub, to bring this important film to the community.
