Youth and Young Adult Stories

Stories of Hope, Help, and Healing

Our goal is for Youth and Young Adults to share their story in connection to suicide whether the experience is as a loss survivor, as someone living with suicidal ideation, supporting someone with suicidal ideation, as an attempt survivor, or through a different connection. Your story matters and levels of “bad enough” or “good enough” don’t exist. Your story is your story and we want to provide a space for it to be shared in a meaningful and safe manner.

A partnership between Healthy Transitions and The Oregon Alliance to Prevent Suicide to share Youth and Young Adult stories of Hope, Help, and Healing during Suicide Prevention Awareness Month 2020.
