About Us

Suicide is a growing epidemic in the U.S. with over 44,000 people dying by suicide each year. Your Art Your Story exists to support families and children affected by suicide and provide opportunities to heal through art and community.

What We Do

Your Art Your Story is developing programs we hope will benefit suicide loss survivors and attempt survivors during their recovery from trauma. Our most successful program is monthly art class in Phoenix, AZ, created in partnership with the Arizona Artists Guild. To see some photos from art class, visit our gallery page.

To support the development of creative arts support groups, we offer a free resource on our website:: “Healing Through Art: Starting an Art Program for Suicide Survivors Toolkit.” Your Art Your Story is proud to be a resource for suicide survivors and help people understand the many ways they can support suicide survivors.


What People Are Saying

Your Art Your Story has given me an outlet for personal expression that validates my individuality. It is a lifeline.
Such a great program — non-intrusive yet healing. YAYS is restorative, soothing, and gradually works one’s spirit toward a clearer, smoother path. I highly recommend YAYS for anyone touched by suicide.
Fantastic and fun!
