In a talk back after the premiere of First Date, Last Call, the filmmakers Michael Tyler (writer/actor/producer) and Sam Garland (actor/producer) discussed
what sparked the idea for the film and shared behind the scenes stories from the making of the film.
We were joined by Kathryn Green, an Empowerment Life Coach, who shared her story
of surviving the loss of a loved one to suicide, as well as the lessons she has learned since and
what has given her the strength to make sense of the loss.
And we welcomed Dr. Vanessa McGann, PhD, a force in the education of suicide prevention
in both her private practice and in national organizations like
the American Association of Suicidology.
