I don’t want to start this year on a morbid subject but watching this documentary compelled me to share it.
If you have 50 minutes to spare watch this documentary. It’s different from the VICE documentary about the suicide forest I blogged about in June.
I think we’ve all been touched by suicide somehow. Some more than once. And it’s never an easy thing to talk about or cope with.
You can feel the filmmaker’s passion an urgency on this universal subject. Everyone hits a low point somewhere in their life. How do we help them pull themselves back up? How do we help ourselves?
