Location: 
Henrietta Hankin Branch Library Annex

Henrietta Hankin Library continues its partnership with PBS Books and WETA in presenting a screener and discussion of the recently aired Ken Burns documentary Hiding in Plain Sight: Youth Mental Illness. This documentary focuses on the mental health crisis among youth in America.  It features first-person accounts from more than 20 young people, ranging in age from 11 to 27, who live with mental health conditions, as well as their parents, teachers, friends, healthcare providers, and independent mental health experts.

A panel consisting of local mental health specialists and representatives from groups that provide mental health services in the area will lead a discussion after the 30-minute screener. The program will take place in-person in the Annex of the library.  Pizza and light refreshments will be available to participants.  This event supports PA Forward Civic and Social Literacy.
