This book is about the portrayal of suicide in youth films. It aims to understand such portrayals by offering a proactive approach, a media literacy strategy for engaged audiences, to interpret them. Ultimately, via their thorough analysis, films become the much-needed buffer that allows people to gain enough distance from suicide and suicidal behavior to actually talk about it.
