The UAA Integrated Suicide Prevention Initiative, in partnership with the Alcohol, Drug & Awareness Educator and the UAA Active Minds Student Club, invites you to an exclusive movie screening of "Call Me Crazy: A Five Film." Join us to view the film, participate in a discussion and enjoy free pizza.

Suicide and depression are real issues experienced by students on college campuses across the country. Help us break away from stigma often associated with mental health problems by increasing awareness and talking about the issues. Learn how to reach out and get involved in suicide prevention efforts on campus.

"Call Me Crazy: A Five Film," from the Jed Foundation's Love is Louder movement, highlights five interwoven stories about how love, support and hope can help us deal with mental health conditions like depression, bipolar disorder and PTSD. Love is Louder co-founder Brittany Snow stars in the film alongside Jennifer Hudson, Melissa Leo, Octavia Spencer and many more. Produced by Jennifer Aniston, the film premiered on Lifetime Television this past spring and has been credited with contributing to a change in the nation's conversation about suicide prevention.

Following the video there will be a discussion about mental illness and suicide on college campuses. Come hungry-free pizza will be provided!
