“The S Word has the potential to do more for suicide prevention in one year than I have in my career. We can all learn from this film.”
William Schmitz, Jr., Psy.D, Past President, American Association of Suicidology
“I kept finding that I was crying and laughing at the same time. No one expects to be inspired by a documentary on suicide. But viewers will leave informed, inspired, and uplifted.”
April Foreman, Ph.D Psychologist, Southeast Louisiana Veterans’ Health Care System
“The film tells untold stories in profound and original ways. It offers hope, but not by whitewashing the complexities of the lives it chronicles. It is frank and unstinting, and beautifully filmed, too. An important work of art.”
Andrew Solomon, New York Times Bestselling Author
“Screening THE S WORD in our community had a powerful impact on breaking through the silence that so often surrounds talking about the topic of suicide. It has helped decrease stigma and provide space for people with lived experience to share their own stories and be supported in new ways. THANK YOU for this beautiful film!”
JoAnne Foreman, Mental Health Initiative Program Coordinator, Temple Rodef Shalom
“The S Word will move your soul. This is by far the best depiction of a wide range of lived experiences with suicide that I have ever seen. At the screening I attended, the thunderous applause and standing ovation could be heard all over Phoenix.”
Sally Spencer Thomas, Impact Entrepreneur and Professional Speaker in Suicide Prevention
