Mind Maps: Dese’Rae Stage

Dese’Rae Stage:
Photographer and Suicide Prevention Activist from Philadelphia.

Dese’Rae struggled with “self-injury for nine years, and survived a suicide attempt catalyzed by an emotionally and physically abusive relationship.” She was diagnosed with bipolar II disorder in 2004 and these experiences, coupled with the loss of friends to suicide and a lack of resources for attempt survivors, that prompted her to start working on Live Through This.
