Participant Media's 2011 film "The Beaver" has partnered with the Kristin Brooks Hope Center and PostSecret.com for last month's launch of IMAlive.org, the first online crisis network with 100% of its volunteers trained and certified in crisis intervention. This social action campaign for "The Beaver" has sponsored IMAlive's first 12,500 IM (instant message) chats to people suffering from depression or close to suicide.
