“Connecting The Dots” film screening – September 1, 2021

Promoting youth mental health was an important topic before the pandemic. It is even more important as we enter the pandemic’s 4th wave.

On Sept 1 at 7:15 PM, we are hosting an outdoor screening of the documentary Connecting the Dots from award-winning filmmaker Noemi Weis. With heart-felt poignant stories of lived experience, the film exclusively showcases young voices breaking barriers surrounding youth mental health. Through highly cinematic and character-driven storytelling, Connecting the Dots is emotional, reflective and hopeful. Our future leaders are speaking up. It’s time to listen.

Following the film, future local leaders will lead a short discussion about the how film’s message applies in Carleton Place.

This event is jointly presented by Open Doors for Lanark Children & Youth, the Carleton Place Youth Centre, Planet Youth Lanark County and the Town of Carleton Place.

To respect public health guidelines, the screening will take place on Sept 1 starting at 7:15 PM at the Carleton Place Farmers Market. We must limit attendance to a maximum of 100 attendees. Please register via Eventbrite. Please bring your own chairs.


We hope you enjoy this presentation and, more importantly, join in an important conversation about how youth mental health can be promoted in Carleton Place and across Lanark County.

#RaiseYourHand and join the global conversation about youth mental health!
