WORLD SUICIDE PREVENTION DAY

We strongly encourage everyone to take advantage of our open screening of Scattering CJ, scheduled for September 10th – 15th  concluding in a community discussion on September 15th from 7-8:30 pm. ” Register to stream this movie at HCONTINO@CO.BERGEN.NJ.US.

“This documentary not only gives the viewer insight into the loss of a loved one, but how that loss connected people all over the world and initiated conversations among families and communities around suicide prevention, depression and general mental health.

If the pain and the struggle stay silently in the shadows losses will continue to occur that could have been prevented.  Even 6 feet apart we can still illustrate the outstretched arms that exist. 

Be Well!
