“Research shows that one third of Dutch adults have, at some time in their life, thought seriously about their own death. 10% have had a deathwish at some time for a minimum of two weeks, and 2.7% have made a suicide attempt at some point in their lives, most of whom are ‘forced’ to keep it a secret for the rest of their lives. I am one of them. These people photographed survived a suicide attempt. Together we make it possible to speak about it”.
