Join us for a screening of the film, The “S” Word.* In this award-winning documentary, 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.
A presentation and Q&A session will immediately follow the screening. Members of the community working to fight mental health stigma and to support individuals with a mental illness will be available to answer questions and share resources.
*This film is appropriate for adults and youth over the age of 14.
