Screenagers

Join the Adams 12 Five Star Schools community for a showing of Screenagers Next Chapter, a documentary that examines teens’ emotional challenges and the interplay of social media. This film explores the mental health challenges facing teens today and mental well-being. Learn more about what can be done in our schools and homes to help our kids build crucial skills to navigate stress, anxiety, and depression in our digital age.

Topics that will be covered:

  • Emotional wellbeing

  • Screen time and its consequences

  • Importance of consistent sleep

  • Stress, anxiety, and depression among teens

After the movie we will have a discussion addressing the following questions:

  • What barriers exist that prevent teens from discussing mental health issues?

  • How can you help your teen feel more connected and motivated?

  • How can our community support all of our students to thrive and grow?

  • How can we empower kids to develop skills for stress resilience?
