PHILADELPHIA, PA, UNITED STATES, November 17, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — Greene Towne Montessori School invites the wider community to a thought-provoking evening of awareness and support. On December 6, 2023, join us for a special screening of the short film “Blue,” about maternal/paternal mental health, followed by a moderated discussion/Q&A session featuring filmmaker Chelsea Hall and coach Coral Edwards. The event aims to shed light on the crucial issue of parental mental health and encourage open conversations about the resources available, often underutilized by those in need.
The event will take place at Greene Towne Montessori School, 55 N. 22nd Street, Philadelphia, PA, 19103, starting at 7:00 pm. “Blue” delves into the challenges faced by a new mother navigating the complexities of physical and mental exhaustion during an endless night. The storyline explores the isolation and pain that often accompany the transformative journey of new motherhood, prompting reflection on how individuals can find support and care while dedicating themselves to their newborns.
We are pleased to have filmmaker Chelsea Hall and coach Coral Edwards with us for this event. Both Hall and Edwards bring valuable perspectives to the conversation, offering insights into the challenges presented in the film and addressing questions from the audience.
