The Kids We Lose: Documentary Film Screening and Community Dinner at Keefe Community Center

Tuesday, February 25, 2020

The Hamden Youth Services Bureau, Hamden SEPTA, and Hamden Public Schools invites you to a community dinner and free screening of the documentary, The Kids We Lose, on Tuesday, February 25th from 5:30-8pm at Keefe Community Center. The Kids We Lose is a 90 minute 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. This film 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. When we don’t help our most vulnerable kids, we all lose.
