To help raise awareness about suicide and its devastating effects, Baker College and the Shiawassee Suicide Prevention Coalition invite all to attend a free showing of the documentary entitled, “Do It For Daniel”.
On July 19, 2012, Daniel Olson, an all-state athlete from Ishpeming High School in rural Ishpeming, Michigan, ended his life after a lengthy battle with depression. Do It For Daniel not only documents Daniel’s story, but serves to educate people about the impact of depression on young people and their families. Especially encouraged to attend are parents, foster parents, social workers, teachers, and all professionals working with youths. Suicide awareness and prevention resources will be available to all at no cost, as well as free popcorn, water, and giveaways.
