"I still have low points but I know that things can always get better. I also reach out a lot more. It took a lot of practice to ask for help – sometimes I don't get the response I need, so I just keep asking. You just need one connection to hold on to." Our heartfelt thanks to Lived Experience Network members Hayley and Peta, joining Marisa to share their stories in this weekend's Sunday Life magazine.
Their suicide attempt survival experiences told in their own words are such powerful messages of hope and recovery. If you need some support for yourself or someone you know, please reach out to a trusted family member or friend, or one of our partners who are there to help you find that connection to hold onto. Visit our Get Help pages for more information.
