The 6 p.m. screening will be followed by a panel discussion with experts "representing youth, parents and professionals from the nonprofit, clinical, and academic worlds," according to a press release. Those experts include Lesley Martin, founder of SafeSpace; Islam Hassanein, a program manager at the Crisis Intervention & Suicide Prevention Center, StarVista; Erik Burmeister, superintendent of the Menlo Park City School District; and Patricia Way, described as "a parent of someone with serious mental illness" who is involved locally with the National Alliance on Mental Illness, or NAMI.
The moderator of the panel discussion, Nadia Ghaffair, is a senor at Los Altos High School and the founder of the nonprofit TeenzTalk.
The program will close with a resource fair that will allow attendees to interact with panelists and representatives of organizations scheduled to be at the event.
The event sponsor is encouraging people planning to attend to register at tinyurl.com/unmasking422.
Trinity Church is at 330 Ravenswood Ave. in Menlo Park.
