Tess Kunik is a teaching artist, writer, and mental health advocate. After the loss of her sister Liv to suicide in 2019, Tess and her mom established The Liv Project in her honor. For so long, Liv, Tess, and their family felt the need to hide their struggle with depression and other mental health issues. But after Liv passed, Tess realized the secrecy and stigma was helping no one. Tess and fellow suicide survivor Dana Fuchs open up about depression, body image and dysmorphia, survivors guilt, coping skills, and more.
