Coming up on January 16th and 23rd in Buffalo will be a film and discussion at the Buffalo Theater that will tackle the subject of suicide and hopefully help those contemplating or dealing with the aftermath of suicide.

“Suicide-The Ripple Effect” is a film and movement for hope and healing and features Kevin Hines, who many know because he lived through a suicide attempt by jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge.

Bill Hawley, with the Suicide Prevention Coalition of Johnson County, tells us more about Kevin Hines, the film, and discussion planned over the next couple of weeks.

Hawley said the film will help those that may be thinking about suicide, but also those who are living with the aftermath of someone that has contemplated, tried, or followed through with a suicide attempt.

Hawley said the film and Q&A discussion afterwards are powerful, inspirational, and emotional.

The film is free and open to everyone, but youth under 16 must be accompanied by a parent, and those younger than middle school age are not recommended to attend.

The film and discussion will be presented at the Buffalo Theater January 16th and 23rd at 7pm.

The events are sponsored by the Suicide Prevention Coalition of Johnson County, St. Luke's Episcopal Church and the Foundation for the Episcopal Diocese of Wyoming, and the VA Medical Center in Sheridan.
