This year, I am producing a feature documentary about suicide and suicide prevention in America. I started this journey with a focus on military service members, family members and veterans; what I learned after eleven months of research is that this not just a military issue, and this is not just a veteran issue. This is an American issue, and it affects us all.
Every fifteen minutes, a fellow American will die by suicide. He is a father, she a mother; a son, a daughter; a husband, a wife. A loved one.
When we lose a loved one, we feel the immense power we as individuals have to affect the lives of those we love, of those who feel our presence. Equally so, we also feel the immeasurable power we have to change the lives of those around us for the better – to help our brother or sister, our coworker in need, our teenagers who yearn for emotional support.
That is why we are calling the documentary ‘Power of One: Suicide Prevention in America.’
