Suicide took 47,000 lives in the U.S. in 2017, that is one death every eleven minutes.

Tuesday on world suicide prevention day, the Loft Cinema is inviting you to their screening of the film "Not Alone."

The film focuses specifically on preventing suicide in our student population.

The movie Not Alone starts a conversation about depression and suicide.

Jacqueline Monetta was driven by the desire to find out why her best friend killed herself at 16.

Teens suffering share their struggles with mental illness and suicide attempts.

The screening and resource fair are free.

The resource fair starts at 5:30 p.m. and the film starts at 6.

A panel discussion to promote mental health will follow.
