A few weeks ago, Cara from the “What happens now?” project invited me to share my story with their community of suicide attempt survivors, and my post was published on Monday.
As a volunteer initiative, “What happens now?” aims to support survivors of suicide attempts and anyone with suicidal thoughts, by sharing first-hand accounts of life before and after a suicide attempt. Survivors can encourage each other by simply putting our struggles into words. We can show each other that no one is alone, that we understand the thoughts and feelings that seem to be so isolating.
You can read the post about my depression, suicide attempt and life as a survivor over at “What happens now?” And if you like it, share it – there might be someone in your circles who needs to know they’re not alone.
