Description

Suicide: The Ripple Effect FilmA Film and a Movement to Help Prevent Suicides

The film chronicles the story of Kevin Hines, who at age 19 attempted to take his life by jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge. Since then, Kevin has been on a mission to use his story to help others find recovery and stay alive, and has become the worlds most prominent suicide prevention speaker and advocate. The film also features some of the world’s leading suicide prevention experts and shines light on people who are using personal experiences with suicide to help others find the hope they need to #BeHereTomorrow.

Join in a discussion on how mental health issues affect the community, what individuals can do to fight the stigma surrounding this national epidemic and support those facing mental health challenges with other local organizations and community members involved in the fight against the stigma of mental illness and suicide.

This screening is made possible in part from sponsorship by: NAMI - Dakota County.
