Free Screening: Mental Health Series: THE S WORD

Mental Health Series: Since 2010, Bell Let’s Talk has helped open the floodgates of conversation about mental health. Leading up to and on the annual Let’s Talk Day, we are showcasing free docs that aim to break the stigma around mental illness.

Suicide touches many of our lives and yet our society has so much trouble understanding it, or even just talking about it. The S Word seeks to move the conversation forward by engaging with those coping with loss and grappling head on with suicide in all its complexity.

Directed by Lisa Klein, who lost both her brother and father to suicide, and driven by survivor Dese'Rae Stage's mission to create a movement of greater understanding, The S Word is a deeply compassionate and courageous work of documentary filmmaking.

Join the conversation in a post-screening panel hosted by Rendez Vous with MadnessProgram Director Geoff Pevere with filmmakers, subjects, and experts.

In recognition of the potentially triggering content of the participating films, supportive counsellors will be present at each screening.

Tickets: FREE (maximum 2 tickets per person)

In partnership with Bell Let’s Talk and Workman Arts.
