Description

A Film that is Saving Lives is coming to Dubuque.

On October 18 at 6:00 pm NAMI Dubuque, through generous donations raised by Kellie Cook and Angie McNamer, will present a special screening of Suicide The Ripple Effect at the Bridge Christian Community. This event is completely free.

With strong endorsements from some of the worlds leading suicide prevention experts this film has screenings planned around the world starting March 13th. “Kevin Hines’ Suicide The Ripple Effect is a marvel of inspiration, a film that should be seen by anyone who has known despair, and anyone who is or has been close to someone in a suicidal crisis.’
Dr. John Draper, National Suicide Prevention Lifeline

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 stay alive.

Suicide The Ripple Effect is using the Gathr Films Theatrical on Demand model in the USA and Fan Force films for International distribution, which allows suicide prevention advocates like my self to bring people together to view this film and discuss the topic. This event will have a tremendous positive impact on reducing the number of suicides and suicide attempts in our community.

Following the screening we will have an important Q&A and discussion on the topic.

Across the globe, nearly 1 million people die annually by suicide. In the United States alone there are one million suicide attempts in a given year and over 44,000 deaths by suicide, with our military being hit particularly hard. Research has shown that for every one death by suicide, over 115 people are directly affected and impacted. The estimated financial cost of suicide is over 51 billion dollars annually.

With your support we can draw more attention to this devastating health crisis, while helping more people find the support they need to #BeHereTomorrow.
