I lost my father and brother to suicide and 2001 and it's helped me greatly to know that Alliance of Hope is there. With anything like this, it's so easy to feel alone, and even when I don't post, I often read the messages of others.

A great thing about Alliance of Hope is the opportunity
to reach out to those with recent losses and provide hope and comfort, so when I'm in a good place I can share that positive energy.

If you need others to understand and support you after the loss of a loved one to suicide, don't be afraid. Come visit. We know.

I found the Alliance of Hope when I was in the darkest of days. I lost my son to suicide in 2008. The support of the members and the caring people on the forum are now what I consider to be my family. Each person there knows what you are going through with the lost of someone in this manner. Great people and great organization.

Alliance for Hope provides tangible, helpful insights and resources to people grappling with the loss of someone they know to suicide. I look forward to watching the organization grow. It's providing a critical service on a sensitive issue, and I'm thankful for it!

I found Alliance for Hope when I went looking for information online after a colleague of mine committed suicide in 2009. I referred my brother to the site recently when the son of one of his colleagues committed suicide.

On December 29th, 2010, my world forever changed. I lost someone I dearly loved to suicide.
In the aftermath of this horror I was completely lost - cast adrift in an unfamiliar, frightening, lonely, and chaotic world that I never imagined that I would find myself in.
One very long and
lonely night, as I was desparately searching the internet for anything that would help me make sense of this, I came across the Alliance of Hope for Suicide Survivors website.
Although I had in the past distanced myself from anything smacking of "social media" I was drawn to the sensitive and heartfelt blogs and posts.
5 days into the horror and isolation, I found myself in a community of others who knew all too well my pain and confusion.
As a moderator Ronnie Walker brings both painful life experience as well as compassionate and professional guidence.
I felt like I found a home - a family - a gathering of hearts and souls that encircled me despite their own searing losses. I literally found my lifeline.
The Alliance of Hope for Suicide Survivors has given me a sacred space to come at any hour on any day. Here I am free to be and to experience all that I am. There is always someone at the other end who reads, cares, reaches out, and allows me to breathe once more.
A virtual shoulder to lean on, a virtual hand to hold, and a real person who relates at a level that few can all that I am experiencing.
Here I have found a place to begin to heal.

I lost the love of my life to suicide on November 15, 2009. My life was turned upside down and I was devastated. My family begged me to seek counseling. Many people offered to be there for me and listen. But no one really knows what a suicide survivor except for other suicide survivors. I was blessed to find the Alliance of Hope Suicide Survivor Forum. It has been the single most beneficial tool I've used in trying to deal with my loss. Being able to interact and relate to so many different survivors from all different stages in the grieving process. It feels amazing to have a place where people share in hopes that it will help them heal as well as help heal others.

I lost my son to suicide in Dec 09..he was 24.
I also suffer from depression and have no support other than professionals in the mental health sector.
I went on line looking for support and to talk to others who understood my pain .
I found the AOH forum and think it's amazing..
so
many friendly and supportive people .
Very well run..the admins do a great job.
It also gives me the chance to ''help'' others which in turn helps me.
This forum has been a huge part of my journey down this terrible road called grief.
Long live AOH!!

In one of the darkest times in my life and not knowing if anyone I knew would understand I found the Alliance of Hope for Suicide Survivors web site. The people on the site were very understanding and helped me when I didn't know where else to turn. I am truly grateful the Alliance was there for me.

Although I haven't experienced loss by suicide I have heard many stories of suicide survivors who have turned to AOH for help. I have been moved and inspired by the depth of their pain and the sense of hope they have received by reaching out and finding compassionate listening. Unlike an illness that gets treated, loss to suicide is an ongoing challenge for survivors to deal with for a lifetime. With the help of AOH a survivor can have a rich and fulfilled life instead of a shattered one.

I have had the opportunity/privilege to introduce friends to this website. I have not experienced loss by suicide in my own family, but such traumatic loss by friends has helped me see the value of the support of others who know the grief associated with losing a loved one through suicide. I strongly support this on-line resource. Thank you for your vision and for being willing to be a passionate support for healing and hope in community.

I'm a Vietnam Veteran and suicide survivor. Many of my comrades committed suicide after completion of their overseas service. PTSD was not acknowledged or being treated 42 years ago when we returned home. And when someone(s) as close as military buddies are takes their life, the wound is even deeper than usual.

I find the Alliance of hope to fill a need that is lacking anywhere else. The level of caring, compassion, along with the high level of professionalism are a wining combination in the health care area.

In addition to finding healing for a wound I thought would never heal, I've shared the Alliance of Hope with other veterans and veteran groups, and will be instrumental in getting the Veteran's Administration, the Department of Defense and all the various veteran's organizations to see the enormous service the Alliance of Hope provides.

I would implore funders of non-profits world-wide to contribute to the Alliance of Hope, so that the organization can serve the hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of suicide survivors.
