Gutin Family Lived to Tell Scholarship
The American Association of Suicidology is pleased to announce that it will be offering four scholarships to fund people with lived experience of suicidal thoughts and/or actions interested in attending the 2020 annual conference in Portland, OR, from April 22-25.
AAS created the Attempt Survivor and Lived Experience (ASLE) division in 2014. Through this scholarship, AAS is working toward equity for people with lived experience within the overall membership. AAS recognizes the significant economic and social barriers that might make this conference inaccessible to those with lived experience, and views this scholarship as a step toward mitigating these barriers.
The Gutin Family has been involved with AAS since 2000. Nina Gutin, clinical psychologist and co-chair of the AAS Clinician-Survivors Task Force, has lived experience as an attempt survivor and lost her brother Jeff to suicide in 1995. Nina encouraged her father Irving to get involved with AAS subsequent to Jeff’s loss, and he was a member of the AAS board until his death in 2016. Nina stated, “I feel that this is an important way to honor my own lived experience, the loss of my brother, and my father’s legacy by lifting up the voices of lived experience through the Gutin Family Lived to Tell Scholarship.”
The Lived to Tell scholarship will cover conference registration fees, up to $500 in airfare, a private room in a local Airbnb with other scholarship winners, daily ground travel and meal per diem, and a one-year membership to AAS. Scholarships will be awarded on bases of merit, financial need, and increasing diverse representation. Special consideration will be given to those with accepted AAS conference presentation(s) and/or newcomers who hope to be more involved in activism within the Suicidology community.
