Film Screening on Suicide

Suicide takes more than 800,000 lives globally every year. In the United States alone there are one million suicide attempts and more than 40,000 deaths by suicide every year.

Research has shown that for every one suicide death, over 115 people are directly, and secondarily affected and the financial cost of suicide in the US is estimated to be more than $40 billion annually.

“Suicide: The Ripple Effect” is a feature-length documentary film focusing on the devastating effects of suicide and the ripple effects. 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, he is a mental health advocate, motivational speaker and author who travels the globe spreading a message of hope, recovery, and wellness.
