Suicide Prevention Awareness Month Community Event

August 23, 2018

Please join us for a free community event for Suicide Prevention Awareness Month.

Suicide The Ripple Effect. A 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.
