May 31: Suicide: The Ripple Effect Documentary

The Wayne Theatre will screen a new documentary film titled “Suicide: The Ripple Effect” on Thursday, May 31, at 7 p.m. Admission is Pay What You Will.

The film is being screened during Mental Health Month in May.

The documentary is part of a global mission to help reduce the number of suicides and suicide attempts around the world. Through sharing stories of survival and recovery, the goal of the film is to help people find the support they need to stay alive and heal.

The film highlights the journey of Kevin Hines, who at age 19, attempted to take his life by jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge. Today Kevin is a world-renowned mental health advocate, motivational speaker and author who travels the globe spreading a message of hope, recovery and wellness.

“I am so pleased that the Wayne is showcasing this documentary in the Shenandoah Valley,” said Crystal Graham, a local advocate for suicide prevention and loss survivor. “Kevin Hines’ story is well known throughout prevention circles and should resonate with those who struggle and the community as a whole,” she said.

A panel discussion will follow the screening for anyone who wishes to debrief on the film. Graham will serve as the moderator. Participants in the panel include …
Becky Textor: CPS, Regional Suicide Prevention Coordinator, HPR 1, Lock and Talk Virginia Program Coordinator
Chad Layman: Founder of the Fine Earth Adventure Race Benefiting K9’s for Warriors and co-founder of Strength in Numbers
Dustin Wright: Crisis Intervention Trainer, Counselor, and founder of Wright Psychological Services, PLC
Tina Stelling: NAMI representative

A limited number of tickets are available to the screening. While no payment is required, advance tickets may be reserved online.
