Synopsis

Quotes

“Not Alone is straight talk on youth suicide risk and the many things family, friends, educators, and communities can do to interrupt the tragic spiral leading to an entirely preventable cause of death. The documentary stands in contrast to popular TV series on youth suicide that present inaccurate, glorifying depictions of depression and hopelessness unhelpful to the cause of suicide prevention. I recommend Not Alone highly.”—Dr. Eli Merritt, author of Suicide Risk in the Bay Area

“The documentary NOT ALONE provided a backdrop for dialogue on the difficult issue of teen suicide. The opportunity for the entire school community to hear together first-hand accounts of young people who have struggled with mental health issues like anxiety and depression opened the door to conversations about this often taboo topic. Insights were gained both by students who have experienced similar challenges as well as those who have witnessed friends in similar struggles. Parents, faculty and staff expressed gratitude for the unique opportunity our students had to view this very powerful documentary.”—Marilyn Arundel, High School Dean of Faculty and Academics
