Raw, powerful, and heartfelt, Left 2 Live follows the stories of five BC young people who tragically lost loved ones to suicide. Through interview and discussion, the film traces their pathways through grief, to recovery and acceptance of loss. Originally developed as a tool for practitioners working with youth, the film and its accompanying Facilitator’s Guide may also benefit families recovering from suicide loss. “The young survivors in the film have shared their personal stories in a way that anyone touched by suicide and wishing to deepen their understanding of suicide bereavement — whether they are practitioners working with youth or families bereaved by suicide — can learn from this video and find comfort in knowing they are not alone in their experience,” commented Linda Finlayson, author of the Facilitator’s Guide.
