    Funded on Wednesday, 31st October 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    I want to help raise awareness of Adverse Childhood Experiences and how ACEs impact health and well being. I am hoping to raise £900 to attain a licence to show the Resilience film across Cumbria.


    Excess funds raised will be used towards venue costs.

    2016 (NR) 60 min.

    Director: James Redford

    Featuring: Nadine Burke Harris, Jack Shonkof, Robert Anda, Vincent Felitti, Laura Lawrence, David Johnson, Laura Porter, Victor Carrion, Alice Forrester

    Synopsis: “The child may not remember, but the body remembers.” The original research was controversial, but the findings revealed the most important public health findings of a generation. RESILIENCE is a one-hour documentary that delves into the science of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and the birth of a new movement to treat and prevent Toxic Stress. Now understood to be one of the leading causes of every- thing from heart disease and cancer to substance abuse and depression, extremely stressful experiences in childhood can alter brain development and have lifelong effects on health and behavior. However, as experts and practitioners profiled in RESILIENCE are proving, what’s predictable is preventable. These physicians, educators, social workers and communities are daring to talk about the effects of divorce, abuse and neglect. And they’re using cutting edge science to help the next generation break the cycles of adversity and disease.

    The film traces the developments in the field, featuring two of the doctors who pioneered this work and the health care professionals that are running the evidence. A simple survey initiates the discussion and provides the basis for a new understanding of what our culture is facing and how to best treat families dealing with "toxic stress." Animation and well-placed statistics punctuate the thoughtful film's message that, now armed with this information, we can act quickly to mitigate the effects of a public health crisis.

    If you would like to support this in anyway please let me know.
