The mission of the I Chose to Live project is to save lives and prevent future suicide attempts. Designed by a person with lived experience around suicide, this multi-phase project is designed to expose viewers to stories of lived experience as a suicide prevention strategy. In a culture in which silence, shame, stigma and myths permeate any discussion of suicide and the barriers to seeking help are well-documented, this project will bring forth the voices and images of diverse groups of people with lived experience who have moved forward in their recovery journeys.
Funded by the Scattergood Foundation.
