Bibliography of Resources on Suicide and Depression

Books | Websites and More

The October 25, 2007 edition of the Shelby County Reporter included a story about the efforts of some of Montevallo's own to raise awareness about suicide. The Reporter piece highlights the unfortunate fact that incidents of suicide have been on the rise over the past year locally.

In September, members of UM's Chi Sigma Iota counseling honor society participated in an Out of the Darkness awareness walk. The goals of these events, which are sponsored by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, include raising money for AFSP's research and education programs to prevent suicide and save lives, increasing awareness about depression and suicide, and assisting survivors of suicide loss.

Carmichael Library presents these resources on the related issues of suicide and depression. All of the following books can be found in the library's circulating collection on the second floor. Check the catalog for availability.
