Making a comic to promote conversations on suicide

Grant King @UoDMHN

Suicide is a hard word. It’s a hard word to say. It’s hard word to hear. At the University of Dundee we developed a comic to make it easier to talk about it.

The more we talk about suicide, the more we reduce the stigma associated with it. The more we reduce the stigma, the more people will live, who may have died.

A comic is a wonderful way to tell a story that is about people’s thoughts and feelings. The images can communicate powerful messages that words alone could never do justice to. The people in these stories share with us both their outer and inner worlds, to invite us to look beyond what people say, or don’t.
