Location: PO Box 7005 c/o Ronnie Susan Walker Evanston IL 60201 USA
Results: Every day, people write to say the Alliance of Hope is their lifeline. Since 2008, over 5,000 people have joined our forum, exchanging more than 100,000 communications. We currently have the largest public data base about the survivor experience in the world. It is estimated that for each member who actively participates in our forum, 7 to 10 others read and get value, but do not join or post. Over 35% of those leaving reviews on our website have said we were their "lifeline" or "saved their life" in the aftermath of loss.
Target demographics: According to the World Health Organization, approximately one million people die by suicide annually. For each of those victims, eight other people are profoundly affected by a devastating grief that is not well-understood by most professionals, let alone the general public. Our services help people of all faiths and ethnic backgrounds. We help people survive the lonely and tumultuous aftermath of loss and eventually go beyond just surviving, to again lead meaningful and productive lives. With the help of communication technology, we reach places where no other support exists.

My husband committed suicide on August 11, 2012. I never thought that he would do that to me or the children and grandchildren. The Alliance of Hope for Suicide Providers has greatly helped me through this grief process. This forum allows communication with those that understand exactly what you are going through without having to completely explain your feelings.
