N Ireland Premiere of the documentary Resilience

The N Ireland premiere of the award-winning documentary Resilience took place in Belfast on 26 June 2017 and was hosted by Dartmouth Films and Connected for Life

The event generated great discussion about the far reaching impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences on physical and mental health, as well as social outcomes. The message from the film was one of hope and it was acknowledged that there is some great resilience-building work taking place in N Ireland. There was a great interest in collaborating to raise awareness of these issues, including the suggestion of a ACEs Awareness week throughout N Ireland. 

Some of those who attended the event shared their key insights.
