Kevin Hines: Suicide the Ripple Effect Film Screening

The Bucks County Suicide Prevention Task Force is hosting a local premiere screening of Suicide: The Ripple Effect, a film created to help reduce the number of suicides and suicide attempts around the world.
The event will be held from 5 to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, November 6, in one or both of the community rooms on the first floor of the Administration Building, depending on turnout.

The documentary film centers on the journey of Kevin Hines, who at age 19 attempted to take his life by jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge. Sixteen years later, Kevin is a world-renowned mental health advocate, motivational speaker and author who travels the globe spreading a message of hope, recovery and wellness. The film chronicles his personal journey and the ripple effect it has had on those affected by his suicide attempt and his subsequent life’s work. It also highlights stories of people and families who are utilizing their personal tragedy to bring hope and healing to others. Learn more about the film here: suicidetherippleeffect.com.
