Screening of the award-winning documentary "Saving 10,000: Winning a War on Suicide in Japan" (Japanese with English subtitles). A short educational session on suicide prevention before the film screening. A discussion session on suicide issues in the Japanese population led by a diverse panel after the film.
Please note that this event is in the same format as the CJS Special Event on February 6, but is done in Japanese.
Each year, approximately 30,000 Japanese die by suicide, a rate nearly double that of the United States. In a local effort to help educate the public about the suicide problem, the University of Michigan Center for Japanese Studies is sponsoring a special series of three free events over three days that combines film, lecture, and lively discussion. You are invited to attend any one or all three events.
Cosponsored by the Consulate-General of Japan in Detroit and the Japan Business Society of Detroit.
