Storytelling: A viable avenue for suicide prevention
Blackwood, A. & Dicharry, L.
In the wake of rising conversation and research development around suicide, lived experience has served as a tool not only for other individuals struggling with suicidality, but also for those whose loved ones have struggled. Storytelling as a tool for treatment will be presented by exploring the neurological effects of storytelling, observing data collected from individuals before and after hearing Kevin Hines’ specific story of suicide attempt and survival, and digging deeper into the efficacy of storytelling for mental health treatment.
