Upcoming Parent Connection Event
Join The Westford Parent Connection For A Screening Of No Letting Go

Based on the multi-award short film Illness, No Letting Go follows the story of the Spencer family, whose middle son, Timothy, struggles with anxiety, depression, and mood disorder. As his symptoms become more and more debilitating, his parents are faced with painfully difficult choices that will change their lives forever. The family’s world starts to unravel as Timothy becomes increasingly fragile and unable to cope with life. The painful challenges of Timothy’s every day life take their toll on his parents’ marriage and his brothers’ well-being. Life is fraught with debilitating panic attacks, rages, doctors, and medications.
The Westford Parent Connection is hosting a free screening of the film on Wednesday, November 29, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. in the Stony Brook Middle School, 9 Farmer Way, Westford. The film is about 90 minutes long. After the screening, Sue Hanly, RN, will take questions from the audience related to mental health issues and concerns. The film’s key messages are hopeful and inspiring. Mental health is as important as physical health, and it is important to talk openly about it. The film is appropriate for parents and teens, guardians, teachers, and anyone else who works with children and young adults.
