Suicide Prevention Month: FREE Movie Screening and Panel

We know September is a busy month but we wanted to take the time to highlight a free event as part of Suicide Prevention Month.
Northville CARES (Connecting to Advance Resources, Engagement, and Support) is a collaborative effort of several local City of Northville and Northville Township agencies, organizations, businesses and schools to share resources and programming available to Northville families.
Northville CARES will be putting on a *free movie screening that is open to all parents in and outside of Northville Public Schools. The event will feature the movie "Death is Not the Answer" that was made by Keith Famie (a local filmmaker). We are fortunate to have Chuck Gaidica moderate this event which will also feature a panel that includes local agency representatives as well as Eric Hipple and Kevin Fischer.
Please join us on September 14th at 6:30pm at Northville High School Auditorium.
We will also have the following resource tables with mental health and suicide prevention specific information available:
This is a FREE EVENT! Registration is not required but appreciated!
