ripple effect

LAFAYETTE – A Healing Arts Collective will host the exclusive Lafayette screening of the documentary Suicide: The Ripple Effect, at 7 p.m., Tuesday, July 3, at the Acadiana Center for the Arts’ James Devin Moncus Theater.

Suicide: The Ripple Effect takes the viewer on a journey with Kevin Hines, who survived jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge in an attempt to take his life. Since then Kevin has been on a mission to use his story to help others find hope and stay alive. As part of that mission, he has teamed with filmmaker Greg Dicharry to produce this acclaimed documentary, which had its world premiere at the Baton Rouge International Film Festival.

Following the film, a discussion with an expert panel will bring clarity to questions from the audience. Members of the panel will include Dr. Sarah Brabant, retired professor of Sociology at UL-Lafayette and a pioneer in the field of education on death and dying; Dr. DeAnn Kalich, professor and chair of the Department of Sociology, Anthropology, and Child & Family Studies at ULL and board president of the Jacob Crouch Foundation; and Louis Deshotels, MSW, LCSW, BACS, a clinical social worker and therapist in private practice in Lafayette. Moderating the discussion will be Becca Begnaud, a healing arts practitioner and traiteur who has survived the suicide of her father and daughter, mental illness, cancer, and Legionnaires’ disease.

Tickets are $16 and available at http://gathr.us/s/23517. For more information, call 337-230-8615 or visit www.SuicideTheRipp
