Event description

Description

Brighton on the Inside presents: Brighton & Hove screening of “Steve” and panel talk.

Suicide is the biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK. 12 men a day. 1 every 2 hours.
One of those men was Steve Yates. But Steve was more than a number. He was a father, a son, a brother, and a friend. Director Ben Akers’ childhood best friend.

We first met Ben at Good Fest in Cornwall earlier this year, where we saw the film trailer for the first time. That’s when we decided we wanted to bring the film to Brighton & Hove.

In this 90 minute Documentary Ben goes on a mission to look at why suicide is happening. And what men can do to help themselves.

He begins by talking to Steve’s family, health professionals and ordinary men who are suffering - often in silence.

From there he explores the solutions with people who are using their experiences to create positive change.

In this confronting and raw film, the film-makers want to help men (and their families) understand that it’s ok to not be ok, and discuss the ways we can all help ourselves to be mentally fit.

Ultimately, this is film of hope, trying to push us all on from Mental Health Awareness to Mental Health Action.

After the film, Brighton on the Inside will be hosting a Q&A panel with Ben Akers, director of the film, Merlin Nation, The films lead Animatior, Ian Coleman, Counsellor who features in the film and Jenna Sinclaire from the Salty Seabirds. All proceeds will go to Grassroots Suicide Prevention. www.prevent-suicide.org.uk
