About the Movie
Screenagers The Next Chapter: Uncovering Skills for Stress Resilience is from the director of Screenagers: Growing Up in the Digital Age. Filmmaker and physician Delaney Ruston helps parents flip the script on stress, anxiety and depression. We follow Delaney as she suddenly finds herself at a loss on how to help her own teens as they struggle with their emotional wellbeing. She sets out to uncover how we understand these challenges in our current screen-filled society -- and how parents and schools can empower teens with skills to overcome mental health challenges, build emotional agility, improve communication, and promote stress resilience.

Rev. Rob Mulderink, Diocese of Grand Rapids -- Father Rob serves as parochial vicar at the Basilica of St. Adalbert and St. Mary Parish, and as one of the chaplains at West Catholic High School. Being a bona fide Millennial, he remembers the days before smartphones but can also call himself a digital native. As the youngest priest in Grand Rapids, he both uses new technology to further the mission of the Church and fights for regular periods of time without any notifications.
Betsy Winkle, All Belong Center for Inclusive Education -- Betsy combines her passion for education and reconciliation in her role as director of evaluation services at All Belong. Fueled by a passion for helping each child flourish and develop their God-given gifts, Betsy enjoys walking alongside parents and teachers to help them understand how each struggling child thinks and learns and creating structures within schools that support all students. She is particularly intrigued by the impact of life circumstances and mental health on a child’s educational success. Betsy received her Bachelor of Arts in psychology from Calvin College and her Master of Arts and specialist degrees from Lehigh University.
Keith Tramper, educational technology consultant at Kent ISD -- Keith is passionate about empowering students and educators to impact their world through the use of technology.
