BREAKING POINTS Film Screening in Mamaroneck, New York

We partnered with the Rye Neck Parent Teacher Student Association to host a screening of our short documentary film, BREAKING POINTS. The film explores the stress and pressures teens face every day, as well as the unhealthy ways that many of them cope – including abuse of prescription stimulants. Following the film, a panel discussion offered strategies for parents to play an active role in reducing the stress in their teen’s lives to help them find better ways to deal with pressure.

The panel included Dr. Alicia Murray, Board Certified Psychiatrist & Board Certified Addiction Psychiatrist; Dr. Chad Brice, licensed clinical psychologist who works with children, adolescents, adults and families; Emma Murphy, young woman in recovery; Cheryl Brause, mindfulness instructor; and Dr. Andre Newfield, addiction psychiatrist who served as the moderator for the event.

The screening took place at Rye Neck High School and was sponsored for parents and caregivers in the Larchmont, Mamaroneck and Rye communities as part of Rye Neck’s “Because We Care” series.

One mom who participated said of the screening, “The BREAKING POINTS presentation was thought-provoking and powerful. Coupled with the panel discussion, the event was one of the best of its kind that I have attended in 14 years of living in Rye. I felt that the carefully selected speakers were an informative and impressive addition to the film – each of them was eloquent and spoke with relevance. I hope that the community will continue to come out to support these efforts, as I feel that they are of tremendous value.”
