Voices Still Unheard
In April 2014, a documentary celebrating the value of welcoming the voice and lived expertise of suicide attempt survivors at to the prevention and education tables debuted.. The film, A Voice at the Table, received accolades from across the country, is used as a teaching and training tool, and received
Honorary Mention at the 2015 SAMHSA Voice Awards.
This Voices Still Unheard documentary spotlights the voices of two natural offshoots from A Voice at the Table.
Where is the voice of our youth? What do those in their twenties, whether in college, the workforce – or neither – what do they have to say about what worked for them, what didn’t, and what would have been helpful as they traveled the difficult path of teen depression, self-injury, suicidal ideation and suicide attempts? The second voice is that of their friends and family as they struggled from the distance or alongside their loved one.
Voices Still Unheard was screened at the April 2016 Massachusetts Conference for Suicide Prevention
