Dec. 4 - Ramsey Parent Academy: Suicide The Ripple Effect

Suicide The Ripple Effect

To help continue our focus on mental health and to draw attention to the issue of suicide, we are hosting a special screening of the new inspirational documentary Suicide The Ripple Effect, which will be followed by an engaging discussion on the topic. This event is scheduled for December 4, 2019, Ramsey High School, starting at 7:30 PM. The film carries a message of hope and healing.  We strongly encourage you to bring your children ages 10+. There is no cost.

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 Kevin has been on a mission to use his story to help others find recovery and stay alive and has become the world's most prominent suicide prevention speaker and advocate. The film also features some of the world’s leading suicide prevention experts and shines a light on people who are using personal experiences with suicide to help others find the hope they need to stay alive.  Suicide The Ripple Effect Teaser Trailer

Thank you for your continued support,

Matthew J. Murphy, Ed. D., Superintendent of Schools, Ramsey Public Schools
