The S Word: Film screening and panel discussion on World Suicide Prevention Day

“The most dangerous word is Silence. Speaking the word Suicide is not the problem. It’s the silence that so often surrounds it.”

This event features a screening of the documentary The S Word, a panel discussion, as well as information tables from many campus organizations and local non-profits that focus on mental health services.

The panel discussion about suicide signals, prevention strategies, and education will feature Lisa Klein (Filmmaker and U-M Alumna), Melvin McInnis (M.D., Research Director, Heinz C. Prechter Bipolar Research Program), Cheryl King, Ph.D. (Professor of Psychiatry, U-M Depression Center Faculty), Julie Kaplan (embedded CAPS Counselor at Ross), Spencer Walz (Student & Volunteer with NAMI Washtenaw County), Sam Orley (Executive Director, Wolverine Support Network).

This event is free of charge and open to the campus community and the public, but pre-registration is required.

Brought to you by the Heinz C. Prechter Bipolar Research Program and the University of Michigan Depression Center, in collaboration with the Stephen M. Ross School of Business

UMS presents Every Brilliant Thing, a new play about depression and suicide, on September 12-17, 2017.
