A4 I would encourage them to first to tell it in a small setting among ‘like hearts’ to get a feel of what the experience was for them. There comes with telling the story some introspection. .

A.4.b. thinking about sharing your story? As a suicide loss or suicide attempt survivor, you should be proud of your journey to healing through the intense pain you have endured. Be the hero of your narrative, because your survival makes you a hero to me!

A4 I think storytelling will continue to be a vital part of prevention work. We can already see how researchers and Dr’s are listening more to individuals impacted by suicide. They need to as our voice is relevant and necessary.

A2d Courage is contagious. One storyteller inspires a hundred more. So in a crisis, in this suicide epidemic, with so many and ever increasing deaths of despair, each one of us can take action—tell a story, spread a story, listen to a story, inspire others.

A1a: I chose to share my story because for so long I felt alone and isolated with my experience. I wanted to offer my story as a way to connect with and help others who may be in a similar place.

A4: Sometimes we need to "share" our story with ourselves first. Write it out and read it to be able to heal from the experience. Then we can know whether we are ready to share with a broader audience.

A4a. Getting more people with lived experience sharing their stories in a safe and responsible way has huge potential to bring more awareness and support to suicide prevention and suicide grief/trauma.

A4f On the broad scope, we can’t divorce suicide prevention from honest conversations and real talk about the economy, the opioid crisis, laws/policies on firearms. On segmented side, I think we need to amplify the specific narratives from vulnerable populations

A4 I think that additional healing can come from telling our stories to others, but I don't think that it is a thing to do in order to "find" healing. I think I look at is as 'giving back'.

A4d . In sharing stories of resilience and survival, we can offer connection and hope to those in despair. But we need more storytellers and improved distribution and access to lived experience narratives. I really believe lives depend on this.

A.1.b. Before sharing my story, I thought about how being open about this time in my life could impact me & my family. The potential pros > potential cons so I came forward.

A1 I had lost hope of ever recovering and DBT offered a path out of what felt like a sealed tunnel. It felt a little like a personal discovery and I wanted more people to know about it!
