Cottey College will host a screening of the documentary The S Word on Tuesday, January 21, at 7 p.m. in the Auditorium of the Haidee and Allen Wild Center for the Arts. The showing is free and no tickets are required.
A suicide attempt survivor is on a mission to find fellow survivors and document their stories of unguarded courage, insight, pain, and humor. Along the way, she discovers a national community rising to transform personal struggles into action. The S Word chronicles her journey and these survivors in a powerful feature documentary that puts a human face to a topic that has long been stigmatized and buried with the lives it has claimed. Suicide affects people of all ages, races, faiths, ethnicities, gender presentations, sexual orientations, professions, and so much more.
The Center for the Arts is on the northeast corner of Austin and Tower streets in Nevada, Missouri.
