LOUISIANA'S YOUTH MENTAL HEALTH IN THE SPOTLIGHT

COPING THROUGH COVID: WHAT PARENTS & TEACHERS NEED TO KNOW
Virtual Event
Tuesday 6:00 PM
Watch at www.wellbeings.org/lpb
Watch & Comment on LPB Facebook page or Well Beings Facebook page

With the trauma of multiple natural disasters and a world-wide health pandemic, it’s no wonder that the mental health of Louisiana’s young people is a concern. High school and college students are already at a higher risk for experiencing anxiety and depression…now add the fears and uncertainties we’re all experiencing and you begin to get a clear picture of the challenges many of our most vulnerable are facing.

LPB and Well Beings are working together to help provide awareness and answers to this growing problem. This coming Tuesday, September 21st from six until seven-30, André Moreau will host an interactive virtual community conversation: Louisiana’s Youth Mental Health – Coping Through Covid – What Parents and Teachers Need to Know. This is a live streaming event…you don’t have to register. We’ll have experts working in the youth mental health space that are going to help us explore the issues our young people are facing and help demystify and destigmatize mental health challenges. You can also watch live on the Well Beings or LPB Facebook pages and participate by asking questions through the comments section there. We’re also trying to move forward with solutions by providing a resource toolkit that anyone can access.

Don’t let the title fool you. This event is not just for parents and teachers; it’s for all of us. We hope you will encourage the young people in your life to watch with us…maybe even watch together as a family as a way to start your own conversation. 

"A POIGNANT PORTRAIT OF DEMENTIA"   - A MASTERPIECE MYSTERY STAND-ALONE EPISODE

ELIZABETH IS MISSING ON MASTERPIECE
Sunday 8:00 PM

Glenda Jackson's International Emmy and BAFTA award-winning performance is at the heart of this adaptation of Emma Healey's acclaimed novel. Jackson plays feisty grandmother Maud Horsham, who is desperately trying to solve two mysteries even as she declines ever deeper into dementia. 

Maud lives alone and is struggling with a diagnosis of early-stage Alzheimer's. Gardening with her friend Elizabeth provides a bright spot in Maud's life, so when Elizabeth ominously goes missing Maud is determined to solve the mystery while she still can. This current drama gets wrapped up in Maud's mind with the past disappearance of her own sister, Sukey. In her increasingly disoriented perception, Maud attacks the problem with a system she uses around the house: sticky notes, posted everywhere, documenting daily reminders to herself. As memories, clues, and deductions pile up, viewers come to see the world as Maud does, and to solve the mystery as this tenacious, vision-haunted sleuth does.

This stand-alone Masterpiece episode was called a "poignant portrait of dementia" by Salon, with critics praising Jackson's performance. CLICK HERE to watch a short video in which Glenda Jackson discusses Maud's complex story about dementia and the nature of memories.

HINDSIGHT
Now Streaming
www.lpb.org/hindsight

Films that explore the tumultuous events of 2020 told by filmmakers with unique perspectives. The Hindsight Project is a fascinating new initiative that LPB is proud to be participating in. The goal was to help support BIPOC filmmakers from the American South and Puerto Rico as they worked to create short films looking at how their communities navigated the unprecedented events of 2020. Two Louisiana-based filmmakers were chosen to be a part of the project, and LPB helped provide support, guidance...and now awareness!

Go to www.lpb.org/hindsight to watch the Louisiana-based film shorts from Zac Manuel and Kiyoko McCrae, as well as the other four films that explore such diverse topics as an interfaith choir, immigration and isolation in Arkansas, and food insecurity in Puerto Rico. 

Much thanks to our partners,  Firelight MediaReel South, the Center for Asian American Media (CAAM), and public media stations across the South! Stay tuned for your chance to meet the filmmakers in an LPB Virtual Event.
