Description:

The Suicide Prevention Coalition of Franklin County, Franklin County Library System and Healthy Franklin County are partnering to show an online (virtual) free screening of the documentary film “The S Word.” Facilitated group discussions will follow the movie and information about community resources and supports will be available.

About the movie: "The S Word" skillfully weaves stories of survivors from a cross-section of America including LGBT, African American and Asian American communities, who candidly share their profoundly emotional stories of trauma, mental health challenges, survival, and advocacy. The film’s narrative flows organically from one story to the next, starting with personal moments and building emotional momentum before widening out to show how their journeys are driving the national movement to take the “S” word from unthinkable to preventable. This documentary tackles one of the most unfathomable issues of our time: suicide. Let's open the conversation to reduce the shame and silence.

Adult Content and Trigger Warning: The film and follow up discussion will deal with sensitive material about suicide.
