What is Post-Suicidal Growth?

Post-Suicidal Growth (#PSG) is the process of recovery and growth following a suicidal crisis. This is the term for how people get back up and get better after a suicidal experience of their own, or someone they care about.

What are the 5-Stages for Post-Suicidal Growth?

You can get more detailed information above - from the video and emailed to you through the form. However, here are the 5 essential stages that I use for recovery and growth after a suicidal crisis:

  1. Stabilize - How to stop your fall
  2. Recovery - How to get back to yourself
  3. Evaluate - How to figure out what happened to you
  4. Learn - How to identify specific skills you can use now
  5. Grow - How to bring what you learn from suicidal experience into your life and work

My Bio

I attempted suicide during college but transformed my experience into advocacy by forming the first student-led college mental health and suicide prevention group (Brown University chapter of the Suicide Prevention Action Network; B-SPAN).

Since 1996, I have worked with many organizations to promote suicide prevention including the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill (NAMI); La Frontera / EMPACT Suicide Prevention Center; National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention (Action Alliance; Suicide Attempt Survivor Task Force and Impact Group); and the Suicide Prevention Resource Center (SPRC).

I was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2015 Voice Awards by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). 

After graduating from UCLA with a Ph.D. in clinical psychology, I completed a postdoctoral research fellowship focused on public health approaches to suicide prevention at the University of Rochester Center for the Prevention and Study of Suicide.

As a professional writer, I'm the author of Eight Stories Up: An Adolescent Chooses Hope over Suicide and 13 Answers for the 13 Reasons Why, as well as primary writer of The Way Forward: Pathways to hope, recovery, and wellness with insights from lived experience released in 2014 by the Action Alliance (Suicide Attempt Survivors Task Force). 

I serve as the Chair of the Attempt Survivor and Lived Experience Division of the American Association of Suicidology, and Co-Chair of the Consumer Survivor Committee for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.
