The voice of a survivor. Attempting to die by suicide is one thing many don’t understand. Living after an attempt is something an attempt survivor struggles with. Let’s gain a better understanding of how to help attempters regain hope and meaning for life. It’s in the darkest hour that a voice light can help another not just survive but thrive in life.
