The links below will take you to a dissertation on the stigma of suicide written by Jean M Buck in accordance with the requirements for her Master’s degree. Ms Buck is a psychotherapist who has DID, has herself attempted suicide, and lost her father to suicide. In my opinion, the dissertation is fascinating. It combines striking visuals with Ms Buck’s words to create a masterful work that will, no doubt, be helpful to many. Via email, Ms Buck wrote my hope was that [the dissertation] would one day be useful to someone.
I am grateful to her for allowing me to publish her work here. It takes courage to come forth with such personal information in a public forum.
