Centerstone previews film for suicide awareness

Posted: Updated:

CARBONDALE -- Centerstone will host a free screening at SIU later this week of the groundbreaking film Suicide: The Ripple Effect.

Centerstone CEO John Markley partnered with filmmaker Kevin Hines to aide those who might be contemplating suicide. Hines attempted suicide in 2001, and has since become a mental health advocate. He created the documentary to highlight how suicide effects those left behind and share his story of survival. 

Markley says the message of the film aligns with the mission of Centerstone. 

"These are very significant issues, and they're going to reach people in a very significant way. So I hope that the people, when they see this, that this movie really speaks to them that you're not going through this alone." Markley said. 

The screening will be held at SIU's Student Center at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 10. 

Admission is free, thanks to several local sponsors including Watermark Auto Foundation, The Tony Galines Jr. Foundation, SIH, and SIU Carbondale.
