The Kids We Lose Film Screening

May 23 @ 6:00 pm 7:30 pm

The Bayfield Parent & Community Advisory Group and the La Plata County Suicide Prevention Collaborative present a showing of the 2018 documentary The Kids We Lose.

About the film:

The Kids We Lose is a feature-length documentary film about the human side of being a child or student with behavioral challenges, and the struggles faced by parents, educators, staff in facilities, mental health clinicians, and judicial and law enforcement professionals in trying to ensure that these kids receive the help they need. The Kids We Lose also exposes the often brutal, inhumane ways in which kids with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges are treated in schools, inpatient psychiatry units, residential facilities, and prisons. Their hopelessness, misery, and frustration are palpable. The human toll is hard to fathom. But these are also the most expensive kids in our society. Doing the wrong thing costs a fortune. When we don’t help our most vulnerable kids, we all lose.
