A powerful film about children trying to learn in a school setting while dealing with stress will be the center of a discussion at the Kress Pavilion Center in Egg Harbor next Thursday. The Door County Partnership for Children and Families and three other organizations are sponsoring the movie Paper Tigers as part of a Mental Health Film Series. Katie Van Laanen, a public nurse at the Door County Public Health Department, shares how a new trauma-sensitive program featured in the documentary works.
The free community event is intended for adults but teens are welcomed to attend with their parents. A panel discussion will follow the one-hour movie that begins at 5:30 pm, Thursday, November 8th. You can watch a video trailer of Paper Tigers with the link below.
