  • The aim of this workshop is to explore how literary reading may ameliorate our personal and vicarious experiences of suicide. It will consider how literature enables us to acknowledge the deeply inconsolable, to ‘think’ reality when ordinary human thought falls short, to allow for the possibility of imagining the ‘shabby, confused, agonised crisis which is the common reality of suicide’ and to develop empathy towards individuals who seek it.
  • The intended outcome is to expand participants’ understanding of the recursive relationship between literature and mental health, and in particular to see the potential value of literary reading as a means of broadening our approach to suicide prevention.
