Active Minds Wake Up Film Screening

Thu Sep 23, 2021
2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

For Suicide Prevention Month, CSM Active Minds is hosting a film screening and discussion for the “Wake Up” documentary on Thursday September 23rd from 2:10pm-4:30pm.

About the film

Wake Up is a feature length documentary about the suicide epidemic in the United States written and directed by Nate Townsend. 

In June 2014, Ryan Candice, a high-achieving student at the University of Missouri, took his life days before his 21st birthday. Shocked and saddened, his friends set out to learn and educate others about one of the fastest growing causes of death in the country. Wake Up interweaves the stories of four different frontlines of suicide prevention across the country, highlighting some of the communities most affected by the epidemic. 

In Philadelphia, an LGBTQ activist photographs portraits of suicide attempt survivors. In the Intermountain-West, veterans from Iraq and Vietnam receive treatment at a renowned in-patient clinic.
