"LIKE" An IndieFlix Original Documentary

“LIKE”

An IndieFlix Original Documentary

Tuesday, October 15, 7:00-8:30 p.m. in the McLean High School Auditorium

Are You Using Technology or is Technology Using You?

Technology is here to stay and social media is a place to connect, share and express our feelings. It is also a place of self-comparison, constant fear of missing out and a way to channel our addictive tendencies, which can be harmful for mental health. What’s going on behind the screens? While we are more connected than ever, it’s hard to know if technology is helping us or hurting us, yet we do have a choice when it comes to managing the way we use technology.

As part of a yearlong focus on social media wellness, the Safe Community Coalition, in conjunction with the PTSAs of Langley High School and McLean High School invites you to a free community showing of the compelling new IndieFlix Original Documentary “LIKE” ― Thursday, October 10 in the Langley High School auditorium and Tuesday, October 15 in the McLean High School auditorium. Both showings are from 7:00-8:30 p.m. “LIKE” explores the social impact of social media on our lives and the effects of technology on the brain. The goal of the film is to educate, inspire and equip us to self-regulate. After the film, discussion will be led by Dr. Cliff Sussman, a DC-based psychiatrist and expert on helping people achieve a more balanced relationship with digital technology.

This event is free and recommended for adults and students of any age who have phones.
