POWERFUL documentary Suicide: the Ripple Effect is screening throughout Australia and could be screened at Grand Cinemas Currambine next month.

Dee Bayliss, who lost her brother to suicide last year, and New-Well Start Psychology aim to show the film at 7pm on February 6, but enough tickets must be sold before January 24.

The film follows survivor Kevin Hines on a journey to better understand the ripple effects his suicide attempt had on his family, friends and the people who saved him.

It also shines a light on inspirational individuals, families and organisations who are using personal pain to help others find hope.

The film features Australians such as Suicide Prevention chief executive Sue Murray, Neighbours and Survivor star Sam Webb and indigenous ex-NRL and boxing champion Joe Williams.

At 19, Hines threw himself off San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge.

He is one of more than 2000 people to attempt suicide from the bridge and one of just 36 to survive. Eighteen years later, he still struggles with many of the same symptoms that led him to attempt to take his life but is using his story to help others stay alive.

In 2013, he wrote the best selling memoir Cracked Not Broken: Surviving and Thriving After a Suicide Attempt.

More recently he has spread his message online with a video that reached more than 110 million people.

At the time of going to print, there were 26 tickets left to be sold.

If this is not met, the screening will be cancelled and a full refund issued.
