Community invited to watch documentary tackling stress


WEST BRANCH — The documentary “Resilience: The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope” will be shown at Surline Elementary School Monday, May 13.

The documentary, which tackles toxic stress caused from childhood trauma, is intended to educate and strengthen the community, said Marc Wills, master trainer for the Michigan Adverse Childhood Experiences Initiative and COOR Intermediate School District director of special education. The ACE Initiative is a project of the Michigan Association of Health Plans.

A panel discussion will follow the screening.

It is free and open to the public, and child care will be provided. Registration is preferred but not required.

The movie is scheduled to run from 6-7:30 p.m. All ages are welcome, but Wills recommends children 12 or older should view the film since it tackles a serious topic.

For more information or to register, email Darla McKelvey with the Michigan Department of Human Services at
