To stop people dying, we must make it easier for them to live – By Daniel Mezrani – 28 April 2018
I decided it was time to reveal that it was not a heart attack or some other physical ailment that had claimed my father’s life, but suicide. My intention was not to shock, traumatise or evoke pity, but to start a conversation.
In many ways, I understand why a productive national conversation about suicide has eluded us for so long. The idea of someone taking their own life is fundamentally disturbing, and therefore fraught in the public forum.
It is often the subject of moralisation and reductionism, which are unhelpful at best and dangerous at worst.
