Teen Wellness Series: The Mask You Live In

Screening with panel discussion on problems of societal expectations of male stoicism

To be a man today, says filmmaker Jennifer Siebel Newsom, is to fight for success and sex, to reject empathy, and to never cry.

The result is often depression, anxiety and violence. Through interviews with youth program leaders, psychologists, sociologists and candid male middle schoolers, the film examines the problems caused by societal expectations of male stoicism.

Boys are four times more likely to be expelled from school, with suicide being the third leading cause of death. Both young men and experts weigh in, offering tactics for how we can raise a healthier generation.

Screening followed by panel discussion featuring film subjects and issue experts
