THE S WORD Documentary: Opening The Conversation About Suicide
Coming Soon

Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States.

The S Word will amplify the voices of those living through suicide attempts and loss.

The ache of loss is part of me, but I think sharing my experiences with others is the best I can do now.

What Now? Am I the only one?
Where is everybody? How can I make a difference?

I don’t want my story of despair to be told without the resolution – the hope.

Wall of Hope and Wall of Remembrance.

When we are alone, hope can be hard to find. But when we stand together hope is all around us.

Support a friend, family member or yourself as a suicide attempt survivor on our Wall of Hope.

 Pay tribute to a loved one lost to suicide by including their name on our Wall of Remembrance.

Our Goals

  • Raise awareness about suicide prevention and resources, including alternatives that reach outside the box.

  • Expand the conversation about suicide to include everybody, because we have all been touched by it in some way.

  • Talk openly about suicide without judgement, shame or discrimination.

  • To get people to think about suicide in a completely different way – highlighting the complexity, pain and even humor of our survivors.

  • Change the world. (Okay we know one film can’t change the world but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try.)
