Screening at Archcare

Maryann Manelski, the director/producer, of the Secret Maps Project and the cast were in attendance for a screening of the Secret Map of Surviving Loss at Archcare on Manhattan’s Upper East Side hosted by Fr. John Anderson. The crowd stayed for a hour after the showing for a very intimate panel discussion and Q&A, facilitated by Cristina Juvier.

Secret Maps Project at Nazareth College

We’re very pleased to announce that Nazareth College in Rochester, NY has added the Secret Maps Project to the curricula of its Social Work Department. We hope that the clinicians-in-training at Nazareth get as much out of it as the bereaved people with whom we’ve been sharing the film.

Surviving Suicide Resources

We had a wonderful and intimate screening of the Secret Map of Surviving Loss last night at Archcare on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Afterwards, Cristina Juvier facilitated a good and long panel discussion between those in the film and the crowd. The question of resources for the immediate aftermath for those surviving a suicide arose. We recommend Alliance of Hope and Coping with Suicide Loss from the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
