A seat at the new Death Cafe

Here’s one of the more unexpected chances to talk about suicide. National Public Radio reported this month on the new Death Cafe, a series of events in the UK, the U.S. and elsewhere where people meet for tea, cake and some comfortable discussion about a sometimes uncomfortable topic. Founder Jon Underwood welcomed a post about the recent moves to give attempt survivors a voice and the need to be open to the issue. You can read it here. Early responses on the Death Cafe Facebook page were positive. “Those who have attempted suicide certainly don’t deserve the stigmas that get attached to them!” one person wrote.
