On Thursday, September 10, 2020 PM the Suicide Prevention Coalition of Long Island sponsored a free online viewing of the film "Scattering CJ". 65 individuals attended the screening. Following the film there was a discussion and Q and A session.
Scattering CJ had its World Premiere at the Camden International Film Festival in September 2019 and will continue to screen and raise awareness for suicide prevention in communities around the world.
When seemingly happy, travel-infatuated CJ Twomey violently ended his own life at age 20, his family was plunged into unrelenting grief and guilt. In a moment of desperate inspiration, his mother Hallie put out an open call on Facebook, looking only for a handful of travelers who might help fulfill her son's wish to see the world by scattering some of his ashes in a place of beauty or special meaning.
