Since the 1990s, Orange County has had by far one of the highest escalating suicide rates in the entire nation. If you know anyone struggling with mental health or suicidal thoughts, you are encouraged to attend this Friday’s 7pm screening of “Angel of Nanjing” at the Fullerton Museum Center, an inspiring documentary about one man in China who demonstrates just how much each of us can actually do in the face of such an overwhelming epidemic. Watch the trailer HERE.
Mark Lawrenz from the OC Health Care Agency will be present to lead a discussion on the massive new $600,000 OC Suicide Prevention Initiative, which includes numerous local programs to aid and restore the broken hearts of loved ones in our community. Come share your stories. You are not alone.
This is part of FMC’s monthly film series featuring independent, thought-provoking films with an introduction by local filmmaker Steve Elkins. Each film screening will be followed by an informal discussion over drinks available for purchase. Seating is limited and reservations are recommended.
Please call us at (714) 738-6545 to reserve your seats. The Fullerton Museum Center is located at 301 N. Pomona Ave. in downtown Fullerton.
