Help us honor the lives lost to suicide and celebrate the survivors and their friends and families. This annual event spreads awareness and educates our community on the impact suicide has had in Jackson. Learn how to identify the signs and symptoms of suicide and depression and where to get professional help and treatment.
At this year’s event, we are featuring the full-length documentary film “Suicide: The Ripple Effect” at the Michigan Theatre of Jackson. “Suicide: The Ripple Effect” is a feature length documentary film and MOVEMENT, focusing on the devastating effects of suicide and the tremendous positive ripple effects of advocacy, inspiration and hope that are helping millions heal & stay alive.
The film highlights the journey of Kevin Hines, who at age 19, attempted to take his life by jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge. Today Kevin is a world-renowned mental health advocate, motivational speaker and author who travels the globe spreading a message of hope, recovery and wellness.
The film chronicles Kevin’s personal journey and the ripple effect it has on those who have been impacted by his suicide attempt and his life’s work since.
