It includes presentations by Cara Anna, Dese’Rae Stage, Samantha Nadler, Misha Kessler, and Craig A. Miller.

This historic, inspiring panel coincided with the launch of a new Attempt Survivors Division of the AAS, a move heralded as a major achievement in suicide prevention in the movement to include people who’ve been suicidal.
