Past Mental Health Documentary Screenings

  • AACPS has hosted screenings of films like “The Upstanders,” which explored all sides of cyberbullying, from bully to victim, bystanders and family members.  The power of social media means that bullying is now a 24/7 phenomenon.  This documentary demonstrated that participation from everyone is needed to eradicate cyberbullying, helping bystanders to have the confidence and tools to become “Upstanders,” and help change toxic narratives. 

    Like - A Documentary about the impact of Social Media on our LIves

    "LIKE" and addressed the relationship between social media and mental health. "LIKE" explored the impact of social media on our lives and the effects of technology on the brain. Understanding that virtual connection is not going away and has many benefits, its goal was to inform, educate, and inspire people of all ages to self-regulate, so they can enjoy balanced and fulfilled lives.

    We hope that you will join us for 1 more cyber-events during the 2022-23 school year. Additional topics will be presented in the coming months!
