Josh's suicide recovery story

Trust in your ability to recover and be relentless in your efforts towards reaching it.

“In the days and weeks before I tried to kill myself, I believed I was past recovery but I’m lucky to know I was wrong.”

Josh talks about:

  • Stress at school
  • Suicidal thoughts and a suicide attempt
  • Talk therapy
  • Seeing a psychiatrist
  • Medication
  • Lifestyle changes
  • Building a team of supports

“Part of managing and recovering from depression is learning to be strong when I feel weakest. It’s learning that no matter how painful those emotions get, they will pass.”

– Josh, project coordinator for HeadsUpGuys
