Chapter Seven describes in the girls’ own words, and in the words of their parents, the backdrop for the suicide attempts. The chapter traces family dysfunctions and trauma in the girls’ lives that added to their vulnerability to a suicide attempt. Case studies, quotes, and other descriptions tell of the physical, cognitive, and emotional experience that make up the suicide attempt phenomenon.
