Suicide

This chapter on suicide is different from previous chapters, as it's much more personal in tone. It's not meant to be a piece giving you facts and figures about the subject. Nor do I attempt to give any advice. Such a strip may in fact be written by me in the future, but this strip is about how the subject of suicide has touched my own life.

This is the penultimate chapter of the book. The last chapter will be a long piece detailing my own mental health struggles.

Very moving. From one mental healht nurse to another I've been there as well and you have captured the sense of the thing beautifully.

You certainly brought back some not too pleasant memories.

Excellent artwork too, by the way.

Cheers,

Stuart

Daryl. This is excellent. As a 'survivor' (never heard that term before) I can relate to this. I'm really looking forward to the finished book.

This comic is really great. It is really affecting to read. I hope it does well when it comes out, as you seem to be sincere and conscientious in what you write.
Good luck.

Joseph et al (1993) draw attention to the links with attribution theory, which highlight the notion that people are driven to seek explanations for various life events and circumstances. In particular there is a need to explain unusual, unwanted or unexpected events. One of the ways this can be achieved is through the apportioning of blame. Research has shown that if such causal attributions are seen as controllable and internal, then symptoms such as depression, anxiety and guilt may result (Joseph et al, 1993).
