Out of Despair – providing solutions to break the pathways leading to violent, suicidal and drug-induced deaths of young people
Out of Despair
Out of Despair focuses on violent, suicidal, and drug-induced deaths and near-miss cases of young people under 30. The examination of these most severe cases yields knowledge that can be used to prevent negative trajectories and to enhance an understanding of how inequality, exclusion, and overall ill-being play out in young peopleʼs lives. The project promotes conditions in which all young people have an opportunity for a meaningful life and no life is wasted. By studying death we gain the capacity to understand life as well as to protect it.
