New Zealand-born evangelist Ray Comfort, who's best known for his street evangelism, has released a new film titled "EXIT" that aims to combat increasing suicide rates worldwide by offering a life-saving solution to the millions of people battling depression and suicidal thoughts.

According to the World Health Organization, a staggering 800,000 people take their lives every year. That amounts to one death by suicide occurring every 40 seconds or 2,000 lives lost every day.

"This compelling movie shines a powerful light in the darkness and offers true hope to those who think they have none. Someone you know may be secretly considering their exit," the description for "Exit: The Appeal of Suicide," says. The film was created to reach those who suffer from deep sadness and despair, and direct people to a "better way."

Actor Kirk Cameron, who regularly partners with Comfort in his street evangelism ministry, promoted the film on social media, calling it a "powerful new faith-filled movie."

Comfort, a Christian apologist and founder of the Living Waters ministry whose list of film projects includes "180," "Audacity," "Evolution vs. God," "Noah and the Last Days" and "Genius,"  is the executive producer of "EXIT."
