Seeking Asian Indian American Survivors of Suicide for study

Hello, My name is Suresh Unni, Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I am a
doctoral candidate at Loyola University of Chicago. I am currently
recruiting participants to interview who may be interested in sharing their
story of losing a sibling to suicide. All interviews will be confidential.
The attached flyer specifies the criteria for participants and procedures in
conducting the research. Please take a look at the details below to see if
you, or anyone you know, may be interested in participating in the research.
If so, please contact me. Thanks for your time and consideration.

Suresh Unni, LCSW


~ Are you an adult of Asian Indian origin?

~ Have you lost a sibling to suicide who was between the ages of 18-30 at
the time of their death?

~Have you lived in the United States for at least 10 years?

If so, this research study provides an opportunity for you to share your
story of losing a loved one to suicide and contribute to the field of
suicide prevention.

Purpose of the Research Study
The research aims to better understand your experiences as a sibling
survivor and your perceptions of contextual factors that may have been
related to your sibling¹s suicide.

What is involved?
- Participants are requested to take part in semi-structured interviews that
will last 45-60 minutes with questions focusing on family relationships
and cultural issues in relation to suicide.
- Participants will remain anonymous and all interview results will be
kept confidential. Participants have the right to withdraw at any time.
- Participants will be asked to sign a consent form.

For further information please contact Suresh Unni, LCSW at or at 312-560-2454.

Thank you!
