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.

YMHC is not sponsored by the government or by grants. Donations are welcome and appreciated.

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