Our very own Dese’Rae Stage and her Live Through This project were recently featured in People Magazine. The full-length piece includes background information on Des and the organization, as well as some of her portraits of attempt survivors, accompanied by their stories. Hopefully readers will walk away with a better understanding of suicide after hearing these accounts of hope and survival. We salute all of those brave enough to share their journey, including the people featured in THE S WORD.

You can read the article in several sections using the links below.
