A few months ago, a charming, talented, funny young man named Thomas Waterman (also known as Travis Mattison) left this world too soon... He wrote an incredible poem about suicide prevention.
In memory of his life and his work, myself and Livvie May filmed the wonderful, brave Jeannette Waterman perform her son's poem.
Below is that film. Mental illness and suicide prevention isn't spoken about enough. With this film and this poem, we hope to reach out to those of you who may be feeling lost or to their friends who may have noticed that you are not yourself - Go further than just asking the question "Are You Okay?"
Thank you. Please share this film as far as you can.
