Depression, suicidal thoughts, suicide risk?

Unfortunately, this is not uncommon among young people. Young people dedicated themselves to this topic. The result is a self-written, moving play for teenagers and adults, which can now be seen as a film.

The teenagers Elin (17) and Julius (18) are plagued by thoughts of being tired of life, their strength to live is dwindling. They try to hide their feelings from their friends and siblings. They withdraw. Both meet in an Internet forum for young people who no longer see any way to participate in life and arrange to commit suicide together. What can save them from this?

The play, directed by Daniela Wempner, was accompanied by Andrea Rothenburg on film. The film facilitates conversation about depression and suicidal thoughts.

The film was produced by Psychiatrie-Filme in cooperation with the association Psychiatrie in Bewegung e.V. and with the Kulturakademie Segeberg.

Around the film screening, information booths are set up on site and experts on the subject of suicidality are available for exchange. After the film, experts and participants will answer questions and give tips on this topic in an open panel discussion.

The film will be shown in German.
