On Monday, May 21, 2018, at 7:30 p.m. local organizations will present a special screening of “Suicide: The Ripple Effect” at Regal Cinemas located at 3301 Plank Rd., Fredericksburg.

With strong endorsements from some of the worlds leading suicide prevention experts this film began being shown around the world starting March 13th. “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.’ 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 Kevin has been on a mission to use his story to help others find recovery and stay alive, and has become one of the most prominent suicide prevention speakers and advocates. The film also features some of the world’s 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.

The organizers want to bring people together to view this film and discuss the topic. This event will have a tremendous positive impact on reducing the number of suicides and suicide attempts in our community.
