Film to discuss suicide and mental health


The Mid-Atlantic Wellness Institute has organised a free showing of a documentary about the aftermath of suicide as part of a mental health awareness campaign.

The film, Evelyn, follows a family’s efforts to come to terms with the suicide of their son and brother as they the length of the UK.

Shanay Scott, chairperson of MWI’s Mental Health Awareness Committee, said: “Suicide is a difficult subject for many people to talk about or try and face.”

She said: “We encourage not only those in our community who have lost loved ones to suicide, to attend this event, but anyone interested in the subject. Human Resources professionals, counsellors, and clergy may gain deeper insight and understanding that may better equip them to help survivors as well as those contemplating suicide.”

Evelyn will be shown at the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute at 3.30pm on Sunday.

Doors will open at 3pm, and the film will be followed by a brief panel discussion.
