Giving suicide attempt survivors a voice

While researching military suicides, I came across a new movement to give a voice to suicide attempt survivors. I was shocked to learn the extent to which they’d been isolated and shut out of the conversation about suicide prevention. I wrote two stories, for NPR and Dame Magazine about the remarkable people who are standing up to give suicide attempt survivors a voice and the rights they deserve.

  1. I am a suicide attempt survivor. This weekend I was desperately searching for some resources online and I found very little. I did find your articles. Thank you for speaking up on this subject!
