This fall, Lutherwood and the Waterloo Region Suicide Prevention Council have partnered to present a special screening of the popular documentary Bully.
The documentary Bully follows five American kids and their families over the course of one school year showcasing the ways that bullying affects their lives. ”Bully gives a face to the bullying epidemic, highlighting the story of real kids, teens, parents, and schools affected by this epidemic.“
This film is very powerful and intense, but does not provide strategies or resources and suggests that if you are bullied badly enough, suicide is the only option. To address these concerns, Lutherwood and the Waterloo Region Suicide Prevention Council, along with community partners, will provide the audience with resources, and a panel of experts and Q & A period will follow the film.
"Upon completion of the YJC program, I've had more focus in designing my ideal career path, as well as the confidence and resources needed in taking steps for achieve my career goals."
