CW: If our goal is to “prevent suicide,” it might help to understand what kind of thoughts a suicidal person is having.
In an intimate and revealing conversation, we ask Ken Baldwin,
one of the few survivors of an attempt from the Golden Gate Bridge,
to tell us what was going through his mind when he headed there to end his life.
It’s a conversation we’d only have with someone who has had a lot of time to process his attempt
and who is in a much healthier and stable place, which Ken is.
He freely tells his story in an effort to let us know that even the things in our lives
that feel irreparable and hopeless may look very different when viewed through healthier lenses.
