Shell Shocked: Growing Up in the Murder Capital of America

Violence is a significant public health problem, particularly for youth living in violent communities. The documentary Shell Shocked highlights the human consequences of violence in New Orleans, and gives voice to many affected by violence including children, families, educators, law enforcement, clergy, and other community activists. While highlighting violence and the effects on the city’s youth, it offers some hopeful solutions. Discussion centers on prevalence, risk factors, and socioeconomic disparities; the consequences of violence and living in violent communities; and how to engage all stakeholders to foster collective efforts for effective solutions.
