I attended your film and presentation in Vegas during the National council; I shared the film with my staff and fellow co-workers. We are a community that has suffered many suicides in both adults and children. Watching a room full of individuals who donate their time and hard work in the mental health field react to your film was beautiful! They felt your passion and related to being that “one piece of the puzzle”. I do not think there was a dry eye in the room. Several have approached me asking to borrow the film and read your book. Thank you both for sharing your story and being an inspiration to so many!
