You are cordially invited to attend the premiere screening of five short videos featuring youth and young adults from central Texas sharing their stories of hope and help.
Suicide is the third leading killer of young people overall and the second leading killer of college age youth. But suicide is preventable. These true stories are from high school or college age youth who have either reached out for help themselves when they were severely depressed and having suicidal thoughts, or from teens who have reached out to help a friend who was thinking of suicide.
Following the screenings of the four-minute videos, there will be Q & A with a panel of the youth and young adults, producers and mental health providers. Mental Health America of Texas will be using the videos in suicide prevention trainings and posting them on the internet to encourage help-seeking for those in need.
The videos are sponsored by the Texas Suicide Prevention Council and Mental Health America of Texas in partnership with the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, the Texas Department of State Health Services and the Austin Travis County Suicide Prevention Coalition.
