Lived Experience Coping Tips for Suicidal Thoughts

For the last couple of years I’ve been asking people on Twitter, “What’s your favourite way to cope with suicidal thoughts?”

Answers were then retweeted, and favourited by my account @unsuicide.

They range from physical activity — cycling, walking, yoga — to cognitive exercises and reframing that helps with perspective when confronted by suicidal thoughts. Sleep, art, music, and writing were all mentioned more than once. And one popular method of coping was pets.

Now I’ve collected those tweets onto one web page, Lived Experience Coping Tips.

It includes adorable photos of supportive cats.
