On Sunday, November 12, SU hosts a screening of the 2014 documentary Project 22 at 5 p.m. in Perdue Hall’s Bennett Family Auditorium.
The film follows two combat-wounded veterans on a 22-day, 6,500-mile motorcycle ride from San Francisco to New York, symbolizing the 22 U.S. military veterans estimated to take their own lives every day. Along the way, the filmmakers spoke with researchers, mental health clinicians, educators, combat stress experts and many veterans who had contemplated suicide.
