Your suicide, my story, in 20 parts

Jun 28, 2014 · 1 min read

[1 of 20 — Introduction]

They say suicide is a double tragedy because someone you love has died, and someone you love has murdered.

I loved P.H. and he chose to die February 2003.

I created this photo narrative as a participant of the Man-Up Against Suicide project. Funded in part by Movember Canada and led by Dr. John Oliffe of the University of British Columbia Men’s Depression and Suicide Network, the project provides those of us left behind a way to tell our story.

This is for the friends and family who loved and admired P.H. Cade.
