A Milton organization that advocates for mental wellness will sponsor two screenings of a film exploring what some call unreasonable expectations in the education system.

The Milton Community Alliance for Mental Wellness will sponsor two screenings of "Race To Nowhere" on Tuesday, March 25 and Sunday, March 30. 

The screening on Tuesday will be held at 7 p.m. at Cambridge High School's auditorium. The doors will open at 6:30 p.m. The Sunday screening will start at 4 p.m. at the Milton Center. Doors will open there at 3:30 p.m. 

Tickets purchased in advance are $5 and the price will rise to $10 at the door. Students and staff will be admitted free with a student or Fulton County Schools ID. Advanced tickets can be purchased online

Proceeds will go to the "Will to Live Foundation," which is dedicated to preventing teen suicide by improving the lives and the "will to live" of teenagers everywhere through education about mental health.

The Alliance, a collaborative effort with the Milton Police Department, the Fulton County School System and other community volunteers, works to educate Milton-area students, their parents and the community at large about the importance of mental health and the impacts of pressure, anxiety and peer influence on the city's youth.

I am unable to attend the showing this Sunday but would love a chance to see it. I'd love it if there were another date that this event would be scheduled.
