You’ll find information and personal stories/writings about suicide scattered throughout this blog. I wanted to collect some information to place here, though, so that people who need it quickly can find it easily. Please browse the tags, categories, and links specific to the subject, as well. Some of the information might be triggering, depending on your background and current mental state. Take care whilst reading.
This is also a work in progress. If you have information to add, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org Upon reviewing the information and gaining appropriate permissions, I will publish the contributions.
And remember that– even in the darkest of times– the light can return.

Suicide: Read This First — This site has been so helpful to me in my most suicidal of times.
Samaritans — suicide outreach in the UK & Ireland
The Trevor Project — suicide prevention in the LGBTQ youth population
These documents are courtesy of Jean M Buck, a psychotherapist who has lost someone from suicide and has herself attempted suicide. The links will open MS Word documents containing her dissertation on the stigma of suicide. I am grateful for her contribution!

These are pages I’ve written chronicling my own experience with suicidal ideation and attempts, as well dealing with losing loved ones to suicide. I hope the posts are helpful, if only in showing people that they are not alone.
