I’m Having Thoughts of Suicide

View Suicide Attempt Survivor Stories

Clackamas County Arts Alliance is partnering with Clackamas County Behavioral Health on an important photography project with the goal of breaking down the stigma around suicide.

These portraits are the result of a project that involved photography, filmmaking and the participant’s handwriting. Each participant’s personal experience with suicidal ideation and attempts, revealed during interviews, was essential to the artists’ work.

I will gladly bare my soul and secrets, if it changes one heart to have hope.”
You have to be prepared to get up, get out, and go help someone.”
At the end of the day, I think our hearts just want to meet another heart."
I got better because I wanted to be whole!"
Even when life seems hopeless, there will be someone who will understand and can help.”
