"Metro-Omaha Raise Me to Read hosted its second virtual screening of Resilience The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope, partnering with The Wellbeing Partners and featuring their Mental Health/ACEs Call to Action report. A child reared in adversity experiences toxic stress, which affects brain architecture, behavior, current and future health, and readiness to learn. Of course, then, this subject is important to both of our organizations. It is important to (in words from the film) “weave the understanding” about adversity and resilience throughout our community so that it can make “wise choices” and move from reacting to problems to responding. Maverick|PR assisted in outreach and pitches to local news and school entities. The March screening had 76 individuals whose affiliation includes 36 entities in 14 different cities, three states, and two countries.
