DESCRIPTION

Presented by the MCSP Northeast Regional Coalition in collaboration with the Greater Boston Suicide Prevention Coalition.

Questions: 978-327-6671,Debbie Helms, dhelms@fsmv.org

This event is one piece of a four-part suicide awareness campaign launched by the 10 regional coalitions within the Massachusetts Coalition for Suicide Prevention. The MCSP operates under the auspices for the MA Department of Public Health's Suicide Prevention Program.

There is no cost to attend but we do ask that everyone pre-register at this EventBrite link:
so we can assure that we are within capacity limits.
It's appropriate for ages 15 and up.

The film will be introduced by Director Lisa Klein and will be followed by a Q & A session.

The goals of The S Word are to open the conversation, reduce the shame and silence that have clung to suicide for far too long, and strive toward prevention of the 10th leading cause of death in the United States.

The S Word is being screened in New Bedford on the 12th, Pittsfield on the 13th, Wakefield on the 14th and a Central MA location on the 15th. There is no cost to attend but we do ask that you please pre-register at EventBrite to help us assure capacity numbers are not exceeded. If you do not have Internet access, please call (508) 922-7278 and leave a voicemail.

From the filmmakers of the award-winning Of Two Minds comes a new documentary that will tackle one of the most unfathomable and cloistered issues of our time. Suicide.

The S Word will put a human face on this often feared and misunderstood topic - delving into the hearts and minds of suicide attempt survivors, along with the families and loved ones who are left behind to suffer the anguish, guilt, and confusion of death by suicide.

They will be portrayed in all the complexity, pain, and even humor of their experiences - revealing a movement that could be the next pivotal social change of our time.
