A Family Center “Ask the Experts” panel presentation on suicide awareness.
On September 27, 2017 The Family Center and Kevin’s Song presented the documentary film “Death is NOT the Answer,” directed by award-winning filmmaker Keith Famie. The film was inspired by and executive produced by Kevin’s Song, a charitable organization for suicide awareness and prevention started by Grosse Pointe residents, Gail and John Urso, who lost their son, Kevin, to suicide.
The film delves deeply into the complex and often misunderstood world of depression and suicide. It unearths the roots of depression and explores the reasons for suicidal tendencies through personal stories, as well as through scientific reasoning.
A panel of film members discussed suicide awareness and answer questions from the audience following the film.
Presented in partnership with Kevin’s Song, The Grosse Pointe News and The War Memorial as part of its This Americana Series.
