Event description
The Tommy Corral Memorial Foundation is pleased to host the screening of “The S Word” documentary that puts human face to suicide.

About this Event

“A suicide attempt survivor is on a mission to find fellow survivors and document their stories of unguarded courage, insight, pain and humor. Along the way, she discovers a national community rising to transform personal struggles into action. THE S WORD chronicles her journey and these survivors in a powerful feature documentary that puts a human face to a topic that has long been stigmatized and buried with the lives it has claimed. Suicide affects people of all ages, races, faiths, ethnicities, gender presentations, sexual orientations, professions, and so much more. THE S WORD skillfully weaves stories of survivors from a cross section of America including LGBT, African American and Asian American communities, who candidly share their profoundly emotional stories of trauma, mental health challenges, survival and advocacy. The film’s narrative flows organically from one story to the next, starting with personal moments and building emotional momentum before widening out to show how their journeys are driving the national movement to take the “S” word from unthinkable to preventable.”

The Tommy Corral Memorial Foundation is pleased to host the screening of “The S Word” documentary. A discussion/Q&A session will follow the showing, and resources, information, and support services will be available. This film is not rated, but is appropriate for ages 12+ (adult language and alcohol consumption). The screening is free and open to the public.
