Suicide Prevention Videos



Browsing YouTube for suicide prevention resources, I came upon a suicide prevention video, produced by Springfield Middle School.

This video offers hope for young people who are thinking about suicide. I found it to be most moving and I have included it in the Suicide Prevention Help Global Web Directory under the Teens and Young Adults category.

Other excellent videos that have been included in the directory are:

I am impressed by the level of courage and honesty shown by the producers of these videos. By the same token, I found that some of the videos, posted on YouTube about suicide, range from a lack of taste to simply disgusting.

The impact of suicide on survivors is devastating and profound, and I cannot see anything funny this topic. Suicide should not be sensationalized but should be considered with the compassion and empathy that it rightfully deserves, for the sake of suicide survivors and suicide-attempt survivors.
