  • The Reasons To Go On Living Project

    Reasons To Go On Living

    Dedicated to the understand of how people’s thinking changes after a suicide attempt. “We do not understand the thinking processes that occur for people who choose to go on living after an attempt and there is very little research in this area. We believe that if we had a better understanding of how people found the strength to go living after an attempt, we might be able to better help people who are thinking of ending their lives, before they make an attempt.”
