In line with the group’s mission to raise mental health awareness and help prevent suicide, the movie is free of charge and limited to the first 100 people at the door. An adult chaperone is recommended for those ages 10 through 17. Resources and support will be available following the screening.

This film has shown around the world with strong endorsements from leading suicide prevention experts.

“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, Hines 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 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.
