Nikki Daurio is a junior at Harvard. She connected with Lisa and The S Word after dealing with her own suicidal ideation freshman year. She may still have her bad days, but the important thing is, since she’s had treatment and found inspiration from others, she knows how to cope with them. Two of her favorite coping mechanisms have been talking about it and creating @Stopping the Stigma so that others can share their story too. Throughout all of this she’s learned that suicide is an option, but it’s never the answer.

This video was a project for her Arts in Global Health class.
