Please join us for a screening of When the Bough Breaks, a documentary that “follows Lindsay Gerszt, a mother who has been suffering from PPD for six years. Lindsay agrees to let the cameras document her and give us an in depth look at her path to recovery. We meet women who have committed infanticide and families who have lost loved ones to suicide.
Babies are dying, women aren’t speaking out and the signs are being missed. When The Bough Breaks takes us on a journey to find answers and break the silence. This film also features stories from singer Carnie Wilson, actress Tanya Newbould, celebrity chef Aarti Sequeira and Peggy Tanous of The Real Housewives of Orange County.”
This viewing is for both families and professionals. Please be aware that due to discussion of sensitive subjects, such as self-harm and harm to children, families in recovery may want to watch with caution or postpone their viewing.
