Guidance from psychologists, educators and thought leaders about the impact of social media on our lives is woven creatively into the stories in the film, with the aim of supporting mental wellness among youth.

“We are excited to offer this resource online for people to view safely at home with their families, especially at a time when so many parents are concerned about increased screen time among their children,” said Heather Mackey, certified health education specialist at Axis.

“‘LIKE’ provides tools that can be useful for youth and adults alike,” noted Emma Gil, also an Axis certified health education specialist. “We can all use a little help self-regulating our screen time.”

Gil and Mackey provide health and wellness education to tweens, teens and parents in the Tri-Valley through webinars and online groups.
