Interim, Inc. in partnership with Monterey County Behavioral Health and Each Mind Matters is hosting the free documentary screening and panel discussion to allow the community to come together as neighbors to have an honest, moderated conversation about suicide and mental health.

Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in our country, but the topic has long been stigmatized and buried with the lives it has claimed. Help can begin with one conversation. Interim, Inc., will help shine a light on this difficult subject through a screening of the award-winning, full-length feature documentary “The S Word,” directed by Lisa Klein.

“There is no more highly charged personal issue for me, and for that reason, I am driven to document it and open a much-needed conversation,” said Klein. “It is time for us to boldly talk about suicide because no family should have to experience that which radiates outward for generations to come.”

“The S Word” focuses on one suicide attempt survivor’s mission to find fellow survivors and document their stories of unguarded courage, insight, and humor. She discovers a national community rising to transform personal struggles into action.
