After my 27 year old brother committed suicide over a girl in Dec 2007, I thought that I would never be the same again.!! Well thanks to the wonderful friends that I met online, I realized that not only can I be myself again. I can help others. See recently my husband and I received custody of his niece (9 yrs old) and only months after welcoming her into our home she turned 10 and then the next week her 15 yr old sister committed suicide by hanging herself in her closet. Wow, does God work in mysterious ways. God placed that little girl in my house so tha I can be there for her when this tragedy happened in her life. I have to tell you at first I was discouraged and scared, but I remember what everyone on this site reminded me. Things do get better. You get into a different kind of normal and tha is ok. It has been about 3 months now and I can see this child becoming more of who she was when she moved in. I also now know that I can help through my experiences. I hate that my brother is gone, but Im glad that everyone on this site was here to bring me through that pain. I will always love everyone on this site.

I have searched for help since I lost my precious daughter on 26th April 2011 and found such comfort reading other's letters in Alliance of Hope. Whenever I feel like I can't go on and just can't talk to anyone then I turn to the forum and it has kept me going through some of my worst moments since finding my daughter hanging from her bedroom door. This pain is so intense and only others who have suffers a similar loss could possible understand what it feels like. All I can say is thank you for helping me get through another day.

Both my brothers killed themselves, 13 years apart, one also killing his wife.
I am on a lot of forums so it was natural to search for one for suicide survivors. The help and support was immediate.
I was so thankful I had these caring people to turn to day or night.
My personal road to
recovery was much quicker having been a part of this wonderful forum..

There is a reliability and dependability that serves the needs of "any" that show up when they show up and how they show up, without consideration of resources, time or many other factors that render other organizations to measure up less than..... The Alliance of Hope provides just that 24/7, 365, for any and all to show up..... Countless hours of training and education go into making the Alliance of Hope one of the very few opportunities for sufferers to go... Now. Exactly when the individual needs it and how the individual needs it....... This has been the last communication for some, and the first communication for others. Alliance of Hope is there for all..... Completely worth it!!

I cannot begin to express how much the Alliance of Hope for suicide survivors has helped me. It is a website that unfortunately, you would never dream of searching for or looking at unless you have had the unfortunate title of "suicide survivor" bestowed upon you by a loved one.

In the
days after my husband's suicide, I found this website. I spent hours and hours and hours reading what others had written. It helped me understand that I was not alone in this awful journey.
When I had the courage, I posted my story to share with others. The anonyminity allowed me to be honest and transparent. I posted things knowing that there was someone out there maybe going through something similar.
In the past year and a half since his death, I have visited this site sometimes daily, sometimes weekly. It gives me strength to read the stories of how others have coped. It gives me ideas for what I should do. It provides advice, compassion and support from people I have never met, yet strangely share a common bond.
I have such deep respect for the moderators who are so compassionate and tirelessly respond to the postings of everyone.
Truly, I am very very thankful for this forum.

When my step-brother took his life 15 years ago, I had no idea how many fellow suicide grievers were out there. The loss tore my family apart. It also set my mother, the founder of Alliance of Hope for Suicide Survivors, on an unexpected journey -- to help others cope, learn, and heal from devastating loss to suicide.

An organization that was started from our kitchen island 3 years ago, the Alliance of Hope is now a leading resource for ‘suicide survivors,’ who are connecting with and helping each another heal, 24/7/365. The forum has nearly 30,000 posts – from 2,000 members – covering all aspects of the survivor experience. Approximately 10,000 spectators visit the site each month for useful information.

There is no better way to capture the extraordinary phenomenon that is taking place within the Alliance of Hope community, than to visit: https://forum.forsuicidesurvivors.com. There are hundreds of heart-wrenching stories, and thousands of beautiful posts that demonstrate the need for and healing power of this supportive community.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

watching its growth from Day 1, when my mom, step-father and I were the only members of the forum, to today, when thousands are regularly contributing and helping each other heal -- from one end of the globe to the next. I've witnessed the remarkable transformations and steps of the healing journey that our community members take, every day.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

2) increase awareness about the critical need for high-quality, 24/7/365 support for suicide grievers, who are often coping hour-by-hour, and can become suicidal themselves. 2) raise enough $$$ for the Alliance of Hope to ensure no suicide survivor goes without the support they need. 3) quantify the tremendous value to society of helping transform someone's life so that they are able to heal from loss to suicide and again become a contributing member of society.
