How do we talk to children about suicide? Please join us for a virtual screening of a short animation offering a gentle way.
"Goodnight Mr. Vincent Van Gogh" was created to help support those who have lost someone to suicide and to promote forward thinking on suicide awareness. The animation is based on the children’s book, “Goodnight Mr. Vincent Van Gogh,” which is on permanent display in the Vincent Van Gogh Library in Nuenen, Netherlands.
Both the book and the film were created by suicide loss survivor Lindsey Doolittle, who will join us via Zoom for the screening and a post-film Q & A.
