These inspiring stories convey suicide survivors indomitable strength in spite of overwhelming depression, loss of self-image and the will to live. Contributors include an African American multi-attempter, now a Ph.D. student in psychology at UCLA; a middle-aged author, the son of missionaries; a psychiatrist and survivor of seven attempts, and many more.

    Thoughtful, Important Book, July 30, 2002
    By A Customer
    This review is from: Children of Jonah: Personal Stories by Survivors of Suicide Attempts (Capital Cares) (Paperback)

    One of the hardest things for those left behind after a loved one commits suicide is to find the peace and understanding to forgive that loved one.

    This haunting book will help suicide survivors feel the support of a group of people who went through the same thing. “Children of Jonah” will also help the family and friends of those who survive suicide and those who succeed in taking their life.

    This is a very important book. I highly recommend it to anyone who has either tried to commit suicide themselves or who knows someone who has.

    I expected more from this book. It was hard to find something that speaks specifically to friends and relatives of survivors and so openly describes individual experiences. The elements that are lacking are answers to questions such as why do some individulas make attempts? what can we do to prevent this? How can we recognize who is at risk? What can we do to help relatives and friends of attempt survivors to heal themselves as well as to support their loved ones? There just was no commonality across the examples given; no wisdom to help grapple with these questions.

    This bbok is a compliation of different people’s stories of surviving their suicide attempts. I appreciated all the different points of view; no story was quite the same. Each author had their own experiences that once brought them to the brink of suicide, but survived it and went on to live more hopeful lives.
