Rattle the Stars, a local organization focused on fostering awareness about depression and other mental illnesses in teens and young adults, will be hosting a screening of Suicide: The Ripple Effect at the Savoy 16 on July 25th at 7:30 p.m. Here's the movie description from their Facebook event:
"At age 19, Kevin Hines attempted to take his life by jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge. Seventeen years later, he still struggles with many of the same symptoms that led him to attempt to take his life, but he is on a mission to use his story to help others stay alive. Kevin has also been one of the key catalysts in helping end a nearly 80-year long fight to construct suicide prevention net on the iconic San Francisco bridge.
Kevin takes a journey to better understand the ripple effects his suicide attempt had on his family, friends, and the first responders who helped save him. He’s also working to shine light on inspirational individuals, families, and organizations who are using personal pain to help others find the hope they need to heal."
You can purchase tickets in advance here. There will not be ticket sales at the door. The film is appropriate for ages 10 and up. There will be mental health resources available to take home, as well as time for discussion following the screening.
