Quick Access

Paper Tigers is being shown at LSSU Art Center on Tuesday, April 11 at 7 p.m. Called “Absolutely riveting, profoundly important” by the New York Times, the documentary Paper Tigers follows six students over the course of a school year at an alternative high school trying a new approach to discipline, based on understanding and treatment rather than judgment and suspension.

This showing, presented by Chippewa/Luce/Mackinac Department of Health and Human Services, is a community kick off for the Trauma Informed Community initiative. All are welcome and admission is free.

This fall, Chippewa/Luce/Mackinac DHHS became part of a Child Welfare BSC1 initiative, partnering with the Children’s Trauma Assessment Center (CTAC) to develop trauma-informed communities linking DHHS, schools, courts, mental health and other community partners to identify and address the needs of traumatized children and their families.
