Mental Wellness Community Event: Hope Rising for Youth Mental Health Action

Join us on Saturday, March 25, for a community fair, film, light bites, networking opportunities, and panel discussion with leading mental health and suicide prevention advocates, professionals, & community organizations!

All funds raised will go towards youth mental health action efforts locally, provincially, and nationally.

The feature documentary, “The S Word” by Lisa Klein will be followed by a panel discussion with representatives from McMaster University, McMaster Children’s Hospital, Suicide Prevention Community Council of Hamilton, St. Joseph’s Hospital/COAST, and others. THE S WORD, from Los Angeles-based production company, MadPix Films, tackles one of the most challenging and silenced issues of our time…suicide. The film highlights the journey of a suicide attempt survivor on a mission to find fellow survivors and document their stories of courage, insight, and humor. Along the way, she discovers a rising movement of people transforming personal struggles into action.

The screening will be preceded by a community fair with information tables from local mental health organizations. A panel discussion will follow the screening with leading mental health and suicide prevention organizations and advocates from the Hamilton area.

Tickets are free.

Doors open at 5:00 pm. Light bites will be provided. Tickets are available through Eventbrite or at the door.
