On October 15th, Drogheda Institute of Further Education will play host to the powerful “I See a Darkness” documentary and post-show discussion staged in collaboration with See Change, Suicide or Survive, Save Our Sons and Daughters, Soroptimists Drogheda and Yellow Asylum Films.
This thought provoking and engaging event is aimed at challenging stigma in both the student and local communities and centres around an intimate screening of the acclaimed RTE/Yellow Asylum Films documentary ‘I See A Darkness’ which features the stories of 3 people who have been directly affected by suicide. The documentary’s 3 participants and producer will be on hand to take the audience through their powerful personal stories and encourage discussion and put a human face on the issue of suicide.
International research shows that the sharing of personal stories and experiences of mental health problems is a very powerful way to challenge stigma and create openness and understanding. Read our section on what can be done to challenge stigma.
