Eye of the Survivor
Colorado is usually in the top 10 states with the highest rates of suicide. Through this unique Ted Talk-style storytelling event, PBS12 will help make more Coloradans aware of the impact of suicide and suicidal intensity, and most importantly, the many roadmaps to recovery.
Storytelling has the power to save lives. When it comes to suicidal intensity, suicidal behavior or a suicide loss, people often feel profoundly alone. Stories connect us, build supportive communities, shift biased attitudes, and cultivate hope.
Facilitated by Sally Spencer-Thomas, Psy.D. and Co-Founder & President of United Suicide Survivors International, this event will feature diverse local stories as well as a special highlight from the PBS documentary by Ken Burns, Hiding in Plain Sight: Youth Mental Illness.
We invite you to join us on an inspiring journey from pain to purpose.
