Touched By Suicide is a series of interviews by LDSDaily.com featuring members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who have been affected by suicide.
Through the series, you’ll meet Kaitlyn, Kevin, Shane, Heidi, and Jason. They all come from different walks of life. Kaitlyn is a domestic abuse survivor. Jason is an award-winning pianist. Shane has same-sex attraction. Some has lost family and friends to suicide. Others have struggled with suicidal thoughts themselves. Yet suicide has touched their lives in some way. You can hear their individual stories and see them answer pressing questions about such a sensitive topic in an open and honest interview.
The goal of the project is to help end the stigma surrounding the topic of suicide and provide comfort and encouragement to those who are suffering.
