LIKE achieves the impossible: actually getting people–youth and adults– to put down their phones for a few minutes. This take-action, inspiring film will entertain, engage and enlighten viewers about issues surrounding mental health. Before Covid, 2 billion smartphone owners were checking their phones, on average, 150 times a day, and the enforced isolation and mandated screen time during Covid only increased this figure. Research continues to confirm that having your head down, staring at the screen, chasing “likes” and seeking “followers” is the perfect recipe for low self-esteem, isolation and depression, as well as loss of focus and patience. The screening is made possible through collaborative grant efforts of the Brown County Schools and the Brown County Recovery and WEllness Coaltion. This FREE event will feature a viewing of the film, followed by a panel discussion with local youth and community members. All are welcome and we will offer door prizes and free refreshments.
