BRATTLEBORO — Health Care and Rehabilitation Services, southeastern Vermont's community mental health agency, will host a screening of "Suicide: The Ripple Effect," at the Hooker-Dunham Theater in Brattleboro Wednesday at 4 p.m.. The event is free and open to the public.

The film chronicles the story of Kevin Hines who, at age 19, attempted to take his life by jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge. Since then, Hines has been on a mission to use his story to help others stay alive and find recovery.

Following the presentation, a question and answer discussion will take place regarding the film and suicide prevention. This event is being hosted in honor of Suicide Prevention Awareness Month.

For more information about the screening, contact Alice at 802-886-4567, ext. 2191.
