What stories am I looking for?

submit your story

1. Stories from people of color

I see that suicide and addiction affects all races. Whether you are African American, Indian or Latino or something else, I’d like to hear how stigma is in your cultural community.

2. Stories from the LGBTQ community

Suicide rates are high in this community and I’d like those who identify as LGTBQ to contribute

3. Speaking opportunities to diverse places of worship

Always looking for opportunities at places of worship and I have one coming up soon. But I feel our outreach is lacking in certain cultural communities.

4. Stories from veterans

It’s a public health issue in the active military and veteran community and I need stories to reflect the issue.

5. I’m always looking to honor someone who died by suicide or addiction

Whether you are a parent, brother, sister, or a friend, I want to remember your loved one and honor their struggles.

6. Point of view of addiction/mental illness/suicide from a first responder

These are the people on the front line. In the Kevin Hines documentary, a first responder said that their coast guard for years was angry that people jumped. They felt that it was inconsiderate given that someone had to retrieve all these bodies. Over the years this first responder had changed his mind. They are always first to arrive on the scene. How do they deal with this emotionally?

7. Point of view of suicide from a train engineer

Is the industry addressing the issue? How do you go back to work after you’ve had a jumper?
