Reimagining Mental Health Support for Youth in Foster Care
The Foster Care Film and Community Engagement Project (FCFCEP) and City Living NY, invite you to join us on May 25, 2022 at 7 p.m. EST for a special free virtual screening of “Family Rewritten,” “For A Better Life” and “Feeling Wanted,” three award-winning documentary short films which highlight the stories of youth growing up in the foster care system.
Following the film screening there will be a moderated panel discussion with film subjects, foster care alumni, and their support systems, about how to re-imagine the current child welfare system to better support the emotional and mental health needs of youth in care.
