Suicide Attempt Survivors

To seek help: If you or someone you know is currently in crisis, please call the NATIONAL SUICIDE PREVENTION LIFELIFE at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) to be connected with a skilled, trained counselor in your area, anytime 24/7 or visit:

The Nebraska State Suicide Prevention Coalition is a place where suicide attempt survivors, families, and providers can visit to gather information that promotes hope and healing after a suicide attempt. Please visit the following sites for resources and materials as well as a chance to hear from others that have survived a suicide attempt. 

Few voices of attempt survivors have emerged in the national conversation about suicide, and few resources exist online.  We'd like to change that.  Welcome to the first national blog for, about and largely by attempt survivors.  We aim for first-person posts, interviews, research and notes on how the issue comes up in the world at large.  Read, share, follow, and contribute.
