Thank you to everyone who helped support this project!

Advisory Board

In an effort to maintain responsible reporting on suicide, as well as produce an informed and well-balanced documentary film, we have put together an advisory board to help us oversee the project as we continue through production and post-production. 


The making of this film would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors. We are so grateful for their financial and additional support as this project becomes a reality.
