event details

Join Royersford Mayor Jenna Antoniewicz, Conshohocken Mayor Yaniv Aronson,  First Lady Sarah McGlinchey, Prevent Suicide PA, and the Montgomery County Suicide Prevention Taskforce for a special, one-night screening of the award-winning documentary, Suicide: The Ripple Effect.

Directed by internationally acclaimed suicide attempt survivor Kevin Hines, the film is a first-hand exploration of the ripple effect that Hines’ suicide attempt had on his family, friends, and community. At the age of 19, Hines attempted suicide by jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge. He has since become an international advocate of mental health and suicide prevention.

Across the globe, nearly 1 million people die annually by suicide. In the United States alone there are one million suicide attempts in a given year and over 47,000 deaths by suicide, with our military being hit particularly hard. Research has shown that for every one death by suicide, over 115 people are directly affected and impacted. The estimated financial cost of suicide is over 40 billion dollars annually.

People around the globe are uniting and responding to calls for change with the goal of having a tremendous positive impact on reducing the number of suicides and suicide attempts around the world.

Join your Royersford and Conshohocken neighbors in the fight to #BeHereTomorrow.
