I Chose to Live: Photo Stories of Hope

Grantee

I Chose to Live utilizes stories to instill hope and explore how to increase help-seeking behavior among individuals experiencing suicidal ideation.

About

The mission of I Chose to Live is to prevent future suicide attempts, save lives, and instill hope. Guided by a professional behavioral health advisory board, a mental health professional and photographer will collaborate to tape interviews with a diverse group of young adults with lived experience. Destructive suicide myths will be dispelled, while messages that provide hope will be highlighted. A list of easily accessible suicide prevention resources will be incorporated. This intimate look at the productive and rewarding lives now lived by persons who nearly ended their lives will be a powerful beacon of hope for young adults struggling with thoughts of suicide, and a learning opportunity for family members, friends, suicide prevention professionals, policy makers and educators. Materials will be provided in English and Spanish will integrate important suicide prevention messages into printed, audio, visual and digital media.

Understanding that silence, shame, and stigma permeate any discussion of suicide in our culture, I Chose to Live focuses on developing a new model suicide prevention strategy that bridges the gap between knowledge and practice. The program can be replicated at local, regional and national levels with different demographic groups. Impact will focus on reach as it pertains to increases in requests by young adults seeking support and/or referrals to address suicidality.

I Chose to Live will also share this project and its resources with the greater suicide prevention community, educational professionals, and organizations that train behavioral and physical healthcare professionals.
