In honor of May being Mental Health Awareness Month, we invite you to join us for this special online screening of The Upstanders, an IndieFlix original documentary about the mental health consequences of cyber-bullying, resilience and the power of connection to end bullying. The Upstanders explores cyber-bullying, bullying among friends, families, co-workers and the brain science behind it all. In addition, the film highlights new laws and programs that are already reducing bullying in schools and shows us how we can learn to make a difference together to create systemic change.

The film screening will followed by a panel discussion with local mental health experts including:
