9-Gg: Narrative Engagement: a Model For Suicide Prevention

This paper explores one community-based approach to addressing suicide. Narrative engagement encourages people to collectively share personal stories, yielding information about shared perceptions, attitudes and beliefs. Such community engagement shines light into “dark closets,” reducing stigma and isolation. Identifying communal strengths and weaknesses builds resiliency, and identifies potential resources.
