The Writer’s Suicide Prevention Project


The Mission of The Writer’s Suicide Prevention Project is to smash the idea of the inevitable self-destruction of the “tortured writer.”  Our goal is to survey researchers and clinicians regarding depression, suicidal ideation and addiction in creative writers, poets, screenwriters, songwriters and comic book creators, interview survivors about what works and what doesn’t, develop tools and find resources for those still suffering and present our findings to the creative community at large.  If we can save just one life it will have been worth it.

If you are a researcher, clinician, prevention specialist or survivor and would like to share your experience with us, please contact us me at
