"The S Word" Film Screening, Panel Discussion & Mental Wellness Community Fair
THE S WORD, from Los Angeles-based production company, MadPix Films, tackles one of the most unfathomable and cloistered issues of our time…Suicide. From the creative team behind the award-winning OF TWO MINDS. A suicide attempt survivor is on a mission to find fellow survivors and document their stories of courage, insight, and humor. Along the way, she discovers a rising movement transforming personal struggles into action.
The screening will be preceded by a community fair with information tables from local mental health organizations. A panel discussion will follow the screening with leading mental health and suicide prevention organizations and advocates from the Hamilton area.
Ticket prices include a swag bag. Bags will include a mental wellness workbook, T-shirt or sweatshirt, self-care aids, and treats.
Doors open at 5:00 pm. Light bites will be provided. Tickets are available through Eventbrite or at the door. We would like to increase mental health access to this event by providing ticket donations to postsecondary students. Please consider donating money to cover ticket fees.
