"A suicide attempt is made about once every 40 seconds, and a suicide is completed once every 15 seconds.  That breaks down to about 2,160 attempts, 96, completions, and 23 attempts per completion in a single day."  Live Through This

Suicide is not only an epidemic but it is also preventable if we are willing to humanize the subject by putting faces to these heartbreaking numbers.

Join me and my guest Dese'Rae L. Stage as we discuss her groundbreaking project, Live Through This.  LTT is a collection of portraits and stories of suicide attempt survivors, as told by those survivors.  It strips the issue of anonymity and encourages survivors to own their experiences publicly and proudly. It's the first known project of its kind, exploring a world that has remained a taboo for far too long.
