Starting from the time when drawings on cave walls portrayed tales about human life, people have been using images to tell their stories. Even a simple image can quickly communicate thousands of details, increase understanding about a difficult topic, or help us comprehend the relevance of complex data.
The purpose of this blog is to foster public discussion about injury and violence prevention and response and gain perspectives of those we serve.

I wrote my first suicide note when I was 13 years old. I hid it and the many more that followed in my stamp collection, books or other secret hideaways, all places I knew my mom would never look. For the next 15 years, each time I packed up my belongings for another move, I would find another one I had forgotten about. I would read each one with dismay. I learned the hard way that an overdose only resulted in having to drink a thick black charcoal concoction with one ankle strapped to a bed frame to keep me from taking off. Running the car in the garage took far too long and two rounds of Russian roulette proved me to be a very lucky woman.
