Horario de la Clinica Movil para el Mes de Julio
The S Word Documentary July 11 th
Sonoma County Supervisor Shirlee Zane will introduce the compelling documentary  THE S WORD.
In this powerful, poignant documentary, Klein profiles a suicide attempt survivor on a mission to find fellow survivors and document their stories of unguarded courage, insight and humor.  THE S WORD  is a powerful feature documentary that puts a human face on suicide, a topic that has long been stigmatized and buried with the lives it has claimed. The film gives a platform to those with lived experience - people who have attempted to take their own lives and survived to tell their stories. These are the voices that have been silenced for so long and their stories could save lives. Capturing personal revelations and surprising moments of humor,  THE S WORD  opens a door on this most taboo of subjects through the eyes of the people who have been there and are now committed to preventing others from getting to that edge.
Zane states, “We are desperately in need of a fully integrated healthcare system that does not separate mental from physical health. Suicide is preventable with sufficient treatment. The stigma has got to stop and health care providers must treat the whole person.”
Who: Supervisor Shirlee Zane, Sonoma County, Third District
Lisa Klein, Director,  THE S WORD
When: Wednesday, July 11, 2018
Screening, Q&A, 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 PM
Where: Board of Supervisors Chambers, 575 Administration Drive, Room 102A, Santa Rosa, CA 95403
