I lost my husband of nearly 40 years on March 30, 2010 to suicide. By accident I found Alliance of Hope. The people here have helped me understand my own feelings and to know that what I am feeling is part of the recovery process. To know I don't have a time period that I am allowed to mourn contrary to what others may think. Through Alliance of Hope I have found some great people who understand how I feel. God Bless them all.

I have experienced respect and love from everyone and most of all understanding. I don't have to be shamed and think there must be something wrong with me because I still miss my husband and I am still hurting after a year.

I lost my beloved son October 8, 2009. Since this time Alliance of Hope has helped me on my journey to finding peace in my broken heart. It has helped me to know I am not alone in my heartache. I have found so many others that I can learn from and relate to. I also found that in trying to help new members, it makes me feel good and helps me.

I can't say enough. I just thank God that I found this forum. It has been one of my biggest blessings.

The Alliance of Hope Site has been the only place I have felt safe and understood since losing my family to suicide. I can go there at any time: day, night, holiday and find respite from the undescribable sense of loneliness I feel as a survivor. Despite the tragic reason for the site's existence and the anguish, anger and pain of those who post, the moderators somehow find a way to maintain a sense of gentleness, peace and hope.

I lost my brother to suicide on January 8, 2010. I don't know when I first came to this site, but at first I was stunned by the outpouring of pain by the survivors. In fact, I could not go back to the site for a couple of months. I went back when I was ready and this site offered me a tremendous amount of support. I think every survivor knows that surviving a suicide is like no other loss and it is very isolating. This site offers the comfort that there are many people going through the same thing. It also makes you realize the pain, feelings and the thoughts you are having are normal. I was in therapy for over a year and had a lot of support from my husband and my Rector but this site was vital to my healing. I admire Ronnie Walker and what she has done for us. I would not be as well as I am today if it had not been for Ronnie and the Alliance of Hope for Suicide Survivors.

I lost my husband to suicide on Oct 26,2008. The day after, I was lost and sitting in front of my computer and I typed "suicide" in a search engine and found my life again. This non-profit is a true labor of love and a true miracle. It now only has helped myself and my daughters but thousands of other people dealing with the unique grief associated with suicide. I was able to connect with other people who knew exactly how I was feeling 24/7. Everyday is a struggle when you are dealing with a loss by suicide but with this non-profit it is a little easier. I read the reviews here and so many of them say that they would not be here today if it were not for The Alliance of Hope so I truly believe that this organization has saved lives and will continue to do so for many years to come. Not many non-profits can say that!

I sometimes wonder if i would still be here today if i had not found the Alliance of Hope Forum, I honestly don't think i would. There just isn't enough support and understanding for suicide survivors in society. Thankfully, this is the one place i can go.

I cannot explain what this site means to me. After my brother committed suicide, I felt so alone - no one around me understood, except my parents, who were dealing with their own grief. Nothing is more isolating. I felt like I was sinking under a black cloud of confusion, anger, overwhelming sadness and total incomprehension, not to mention PTSD. When I foudn this site and shared my story, immediately I had peopel around me who udnerstood, who empathised, who knew exactly what I meant by every emotion that I ranted about or shared. 2.5 years in, I am still an active member, as the emotions never go away, and every "bad" day, I know there is help here online. Thank you Ronnie, Cindi and everyone else xxxx

when my husband died from suicide 9 weeks ago i tried to get as much help as possible and everyone i approached (my gp and counselling services) told me i had to wait at least 6 months then i came across the Alliance of Hope forum which i feel saved me because it gave me a place to vent all my emotions and too also meet other people who were going through similar situations. It has been a godsend to me and i am forever grateful for all the support and guidance i have received from it. Long may it continue as i still have a very long bumpy journey ahead.

When I lost my boyfriend to suicide in June 2009 I had no idea where to turn. In frantically searching the internet for answers to why this horrible thing had happened, I stumbled across the Alliance of Hope website and subsequently the forums. Reading the stories of so many other people who had gone through the same gut wrenching experience gave me hope for the future and contact with so many warm-hearted people who I knew I could turn to if I needed their help or even just a sympathetic ear. Over the past two years I have found even just reading the forum to be so helpful during my darkest periods.
