The David Lawrence Center, Collier County’s only comprehensive nonprofit mental health and addiction recovery treatment center serving children, adults and families, along with its education partners, the Naples Children & Education Foundation and Collier County Public Schools, will present the fifth annual Sound Minds Mental Health Symposium from 3 to 5 p.m., March 24, at Moorings Presbyterian Church, in Naples. It will feature a showing of physician, parent and filmmaker Delaney Ruston, M.D.’s award-winning documentary film Screenagers, followed by a two-hour, solution-centered VIP reception with the film’s Executive Producer Lisa Tabb, who has 25 years of experience in TV and other media, with wine, hors d’oeuvres and live music in an intimate setting.

Screenagers probes the vulnerable corners of family life and depicts the messy struggles over social media, video games, Internet addiction and academics. The symposium is designed to bring parents, grandparents, healthcare professionals, educators and kids together for a meaningful dialogue that leads to personal revelation and powerful positive change.

The event is appropriate for children 10 years old and up.

Cost: $10 suggested donation/person for the symposium; CEUs available for professionals. VIP reception: $125. Location: 791 Harbour Dr. For more information, sponsorships and tickets, call 239-354-1445, email MoiraL@dlcmhc.com or visit DavidLawrenceCenter.org.
