Event description

Description

A suicide attempt survivor is on a mission to find fellow survivors and document their stories of unguarded courage, insight and humor. What she discovers is a national community rising to transform personal struggles into action.

From the creative team behind the award-winning Of Two Minds, comes a new film that tackles one of the most unfathomable and cloistered issues of our time... Suicide. This film documents the first-person perspectives of a number of survivors in order to understand the impacts of suicide and recognize that it's okay to talk when we're struggling emotionally and psychologically.

Join us on Tuesday, October 3rd for a special screening of this powerful story of hope and recovery. Immediately following the screening will be a panel discussion including the director Lisa Klein and one of the subjects of the film, Kelechi Ubozoh, to talk about their respective journies tackling the issues of mental health and suicide and their experiences making this film.

Behavioral Health Link (BHL) serves as the sponoring organization for this community event. BHL provides crisis services througout the state of Georgia via the Georgia Crisis and Access Line (GCAL). GCAL is a crisis call center providing support and linkage to those in a behavioral health related crisis. In addition, BHL holds two mobile crisis contracts in the state of Georgia for mobile crisis services, covering Regions 3 and 5.

A Crisis Has No Schedule™. That is why BHL’s professional and caring staff are available any time day or night to help you or a loved one with a mental health crisis or problem with drugs or alcohol. They can also help you schedule an appointment with a provider. Since 1998, BHL has provided quality personal interaction through its crisis intervention and access services. Our programs are recognized nationally for setting a new standard of care.

Our unique approach to our services comes from combining the compassion and caring of a community provider, but the sophisticated business model, software, and data tools of managed care. Yet BHL is neither — our core business is crisis intervention and access. It is our niche, our passion, and what we do best.
