Books with suicide as a theme

Daring, confessional, essential.

While not necessarily the cheeriest topic, depression and suicide have touched many people’s lives. We have chosen a selection of books exploring the topic, some from the viewpoint of those left behind and others, from the viewpoint of those struggling with suicidal thoughts. If you are suicidal, please see your GP or contact an organisation like The Samaritans for help and advice.
