Photographer Dese'Rae Stage sits next to a couple of her portraits of suicide survivors in New York on Friday, April 5 2013. By the dozens, survivors of attempted suicide across the United States are volunteering to be part of a project by the Brooklyn-based photographer. "Live Through This," a collection of photographic portraits and personal accounts, is one of several new initiatives transforming the nation's suicide-prevention community as more survivors find the courage to speak out and more experts make efforts to learn from them.
