The S Word - Film TalkBack | What’s happening in Denver

The S Word - Film TalkBack


*The event has already taken place on this date: Tue, 09/22/2020
Reel Mind Film Series presents this film about a suicide attempt survivor who is on a mission to find fellow survivors and document their stories of unguarded courage, insight, pain and humor. Along the way, she discovers a national community rising to transform personal struggles into action. The film is screening from September 10-22, but the talk back takes place on September 22. Skillfully weaving stories of survivors from a cross section of America including LGBTQ, African American and Asian American communities, the film candidly shares their profoundly moving stories of trauma, mental health challenges, survival and advocacy, and shows how their journeys are driving the national movement to take the “S” word from unthinkable to preventable.

Talkback with Special guest: Kelechi Ubozoh. Ms. Ubozoh is a Nigerian-American writer and mental health advocate and consultant featured in The S Word documentary, CBS This Morning with Gayle King, and O, The Oprah Magazine. Her first book, We’ve Been Too Patient: Voices from Radical Mental Health, was released from North Atlantic Books & Penguin Random House last summer. We’ve Been Too Patient is featured in curriculum at NYU and Boston University. Currently, Ms. Ubozoh is a consultant supporting agencies through facilitation and training, coaching and planning, research, and community engagement.
