You can read the comic on the depression comix site here.
This is a continuation of the storyline from #428. I like working on storylines because I don’t feel like I have to start from scratch at panel 1, I can just add to what I’ve already done. In this strip, it looks at the lack of support for people who have had a suicide attempt, and the stigma they have to deal with. It’s compounding, because you still have everything you had before the attempt plus some fresh stigma and newfound isolation too. Instead of looking at them like they need support, they get “What the hell is wrong with you”. People who have survived are in danger and are in great need of help.
