Call for Survivor Stories

In response to our recent needs assessment, the Tennessee Suicide Prevention Network (TSPN) is beginning a survivor stories project. Through this project, TSPN is asking for people with lived experiences, with suicide attempts and suicide loss, to share their stories to help reduce stigma around help-seeking and talking about suicide in our state.

Many people, through our needs assessment, indicated that they felt alone or did not feel comfortable seeking help through various resources in Tennessee. Many others indicated they were afraid of the stigma associated with suicide and suicidal thoughts. Still more commented that it was hard to imagine “someone like me” who has felt the same way.

For this reason, we are collecting stories from people who can share their own experience with suicidal thoughts or depression as well as about losses to suicide. We are especially looking to speak with men about their experience, however all stories are welcome.

If you have a story to share, please contact Keri Frantell at [email protected] We would like to have a variety of stories in different formats (videos, audio recordings, written stories, etc.) – and are open to whatever format you’d prefer to share your story.
