Inside the Research
Filmed interviews of individuals who came close to suicide but found a non-suicide alternative will be created. Such narratives are often described as having a “Papageno” or suicide protective effect. Videos which have high levels of acceptability and stakeholder identification with the interviewee will be put forth for further testing among young adults (ages 18-24) with past-month history of suicidal ideation to determine potential suicide protective effects of the videos.
