KUED’s timely film, Hope Lives: Preventing Teen Suicide, provides hope through the stories of survivors and of innovative approaches schools are taking to prevent suicide. Independent Utah filmmaker Frank Feldman’s approach to the film was to highlight three stories — a promising young athlete who took his own life when he wasn’t admitted to the colleges he wanted; a young man now in his late 20's who talks candidly about his suicide attempt as a teen and the relief he felt when he survived; and a young transgender teen who survived her suicide attempt, which reaffirmed her desire to live.

When you get that gut feeling that you need to reach out to someone, do so. Assume you are the only one who will. Then check in. Keep checking in. And check in some more.
Much is taking place over the next few months. Please join us for a 5 year celebration happy hour at Payette Brewing on Oct. 3 and check out our calendar below for additional activities. Thank you for your support over the last 5 years. Looking forward to so much more to come!
