Welcome to attemptsurvivors.com
This site was initially published by journalist C.A. back in 2013 in an effort to give voice to suicide attempt survivors, a marginalized group within society, but marginalized even within the suicidology and suicide prevention communities. The effort was successful. After 2 years publishing pieces written by attempt survivors, for attempt survivors, C.A. put the project on indefinite hiatus in 2015.
In 2020, C.A. reached out to me and asked if I would keep the site safe, as a sort of living archive. I have done that here. In the spirit of C.A.’s original work, myself and a group of others endeavor here to create a resource that doesn’t yet exist: a collection of the information we needed in the wake of our suicide attempts, created by us, for us.
Keep your eyes on this page for updates.
