If you are a survivor of a close friend or family member's suicide, if you were the first on the scene...It may seem like you have to carry this memory around in your heart and mind for the rest of your life. Even given multiple opportunities to talk one one one, some ptsd or flashbacks may occur at the slightest provocation.
If you were challenged with suicidal thoughts or impulses, you can share your victory and method for fighting and winning.
The Lifeline Gallery stories of hope and recovery provides an innovative way of gaining some catharsis through providing a way to broadcast your story of hope and recovery using Avatars.
I encourage anyone with a story to give it a try. Here is your link to get started.
