Suicide Prevention Through Stories of Hope

Jones, Elizabeth

Collapse Box


A challenge in preventing suicide is to provide a person hope so that she or he can see that suicide is not the only way out. Narratives or stories from varied sources can be a helpful tool to assist patients in putting a confusing or frightening reality into some sort of framework. Whatever one's theological preference, biblical narratives can place untenable events into a positive, hopeful mental framework, helping people make structure and sense out of seeming chaos.
