My life-center issue research report in my class will be addressing
the main issues surrounding suicides among adolescents/young adults,
particulary among gay and lesbian students in public/private schools.
There will be an attempt to answer these concerns in regards to the
visible and invisible aspect of this cultural phenomenon as it relates
to suicide prevention by employing visual art. I have found several
artists that personally have dealt with this issues in their personal
lives and have illusrated these experiances in their works of art. Part
of this research report reguirement is to center on a lesson plan for
the sole of opening up dialog for classroom discussions in dealing with
suicide awareness and prevention. If you like to share your imput on
this issue please feel free to do so.
