On September 11th, at 6:30 PM, Kellie Cook and NAMI will present a special screening of Suicide The Ripple Effect at Statera Integrated Health and Wellness Solutions. This is a free event and all donations received will be given to NAMI of Dubuque.
With strong endorsements from some of the world’s leading suicide prevention experts this film has screenings planned around the world starting March 13. “Kevin Hines’ Suicide The Ripple Effect is a marvel of inspiration, a film that should be seen by anyone who has known despair, and anyone who is or has been close to someone in a suicidal crisis,” said Dr. John Draper, National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.
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 world’s 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 stay alive.
Following the screening we will have an important Q&A and discussion on the topic. You can view the trailer and read more about the film at youtube.com/watch?v=LytKNC405oI.
