FOR MENTAL HEALTH PROFESSIONALS ONLY: In this interview, Susan recalls events leading up to her serious attempt at suicide. Her unusually articulate account reveals the contents of an insidious thought process – the “inner voice.” Because of the shame surrounding the topic of suicide, there is little information from those who survive this frequently irreversible action, especially about their thoughts prior to the actual attempt. For this reason, the filmed interview, which examines the pattern of thoughts underlying Susan’s suicidal behavior, provides valuable insights into the motives and perhaps some of the causative factors in this ultimate act of self-destruction. Clinicians and sociologists’ will find this film beneficial in further understanding the complex ideology underlying suicidal behavior. Winner, American Film Festival. Discussion film also available.
