The Suicide Prevention team at SANE Australia are very proud to share with you the short film Lessons for Life. Showing real-life stories from people who have been through tough times is a powerful way to increase empathy and understanding. The Lessons for Life video shares incredible stories of resillience; stories that underpin SANE's research into attempted suicide.
As participant Even says, accepting and learning from people who have had suicidal thoughts is essential for improving support Australia. 'We shouldn't have negative attitudes towards people who are vunerable, we should try to encourage and care for them as a community.'
The film is an accessible way to inform the community about the insights people have about recovering from a suicide attempt. Lessons for life aims to reduce the stigma associated with suicide, increasing help-seeking, and giving hope to thousands of others who may be in a similar situation.
Please share this with your collegues and friends. We hope to reqach out to as many people as possible with the video and show that people who attempt suicide can recover.
