Frequently Asked Questions

I'm a member of the press and I'd like to get in touch. What's the best way to do so?

I’m looking forward to hearing from you! Use the contact form above, with the subject “Press Opportunity.”

What if I'd like to hire you for an event?

Have you checked out my Speaking page? If you like what you see, let’s make it happen! To inquire about availability, please contact Ben Anshutz at ben@gotham-artists.com.

What if I want to volunteer for Live Through This?

Live Through This is a labor of love requiring a lot of time and care. I do most of the work myself, but do have a small team of volunteers taking care of tasks I simply don’t have the expertise to handle on my own. I am currently in need of long-term transcriptionists and a dependable social media assistant. As I have no budget, these positions are currently unpaid (I have high hopes that I will be able to pay someday). If you are interested, please contact me. Depending on the season, it may take me some time to get back to you. I appreciate your patience!

I filled out the "Tell Your Story" forms, but I haven't heard back.

What if I'm in crisis and I need to talk to someone?

I’m not a clinical mental health professional. If you’re feeling suicidal, please talk to somebody. Check out the crisis resources at the bottom of every page, or click here.

About Live Through This

Live Through This is a series of portraits and true stories of suicide attempt survivors. Its mission is to change public attitudes about suicide for the better; to reduce prejudice and discrimination against attempt survivors; to provide comfort to those experiencing suicidality by letting them know that they’re not alone and tomorrow is possible; to give insight to those who have trouble understanding suicidality, and catharsis to those who have lost a loved one; and to be used as a teaching tool for clinicians in training, or anyone else who might benefit from a deeper understanding of first-person experiences with suicide.

Tax-deductible donations are made possible by Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization, which sponsors Live Through This.
