Suicide Survivors Speak Out To Help Experts Learn.

The AP (4/14, Crary) reported, “By the dozens, survivors of attempted suicide across the United States are volunteering to be part of a project by a Brooklyn-based photographer, Dese’Rae Stage, called ‘Live Through This’ – a collection of photographic portraits and personal accounts.” The AP added, “It’s one of several new initiatives transforming the nation’s suicide-prevention community as more survivors find the courage to speak out and more experts make efforts to learn from them.” In addition to the “Live Through This” effort, “there’s a new survivors task force, an array of blogs, some riveting YouTube clips, all with the common goal of stripping away anonymity, stigma and shame.”
