Bergen County Screening - JOB

Just came home from a jumping off bridges screening in New Jersey. This was a collaborative effort between the Care Plus Foundation and the Bergen County Community College. It was a huge turnout. A packed house. Beautifully projected. And the post discussion was heartbreaking.

What I'm finding as I'm going to new places with the film is that the voices of mental health and suicide prevention are getting younger and younger. It's a great thing. Brave teenagers and college students are telling their stories. Giving a voice to to depression, bipolar disorder and being suicide survivors. I'm in awe of these kids.
