Batavia IL— 7:00 PM, March 24, 2022 —

Life Scout Ethan Tarver is hosting a FREE screening of THE S WORD to support the work of Suicide Prevention Services of America, a local non-profit in Batavia IL.

Local Mental Health Professionals will be available for a Question & Answer session following the screening. THE S WORD is a documentary that skillfully weaves stories of survivors from a cross-section of America who candidly share their profoundly emotional stories of trauma, mental health challenges, survival, and advocacy. The film’s narrative flows to show how their journeys are driving the national movement to take the “S” word from unthinkable to preventable.


● American Association of Suicidology Past President Dr. William Schmitz Jr., PsyD, says, "THE S WORD has the potential to do more for suicide prevention in one year than I have in my career. We can all learn from this film."

● “Suicide is a big deal. It is scary and not the easiest conversation to have.,” said The S Word Director, Lisa Klein, “Suicide alone is not the problem, it is the deafening silence that surrounds it.”
