My son passed away to suicide. I was lost, and the whole experience is very isolating, due to the stigma placed on suicide. I found this site, and have been helped more here than any amount of counseling has done for me. The online forum has such a good group of supportive members and moderators. There is also education on suicide, mental illness, etc that has been invaluable. I will never "get over " the death of my son, but am learning how to cope with all the emotions, family and social dynamics through this forum

My husband killed himself 5 months ago, and though my friends and family wanted to help in every way, no one understood as well as another suicide survivor. More specifically I even found a blog on the website for people who had lost a spouse or significant other, I met another woman who lost her S.O in the past year. We write each other almost every day. I have had many deperate times in these past 5 months but I know I can always log in to hear from a other survivor, or write if I need to. Alliance for Hope made such a difference in my healing, I'm forever grateful.

Following my father's suicide in August 2011, I immediately turned to the Internet for help and for answers on how to begin to cope with my grief. I was so relieved to find the Alliance of Hope for Suicide Survivors, which not only provided me with information on depression and suicide, but also a tremendously helpful forum for survivors. I've benefitted from learning more about the forces that can lead one to suicide, as well as tips on coping. The forum has been most helpful and I've gained strength from the support of others who understand what I'm going through.

I had stumble upon Alliance of Hope 3 days after my mother had passed from suicide. It has helped me and several family member more then I could have ever imagined. It slowly has helped me heal and know that the emotions and things I'm going through are normal and that I'm not alone in this dark journey because every single person on this site has walked the same path. It helps me more and more over time and has amazingly helped me more then councling its self. This site is built of very compassionate people and staff from every walk of life and every different stage of grieving; giving me hope that I, myself will one day be able to heal and be happy after the suicide for my mother. I honestly don't know where id be personally if I had not found Alliance of Hope. Thank you Alliance of Hope, for slowly helping me on my journey to recovery and seeing that there is life after suicide.

I lost my husband to suicide. It was abrupt and unexpected and without a doubt the greatest trauma of my life. Like many suicide survivors, I experienced untold sleepless nights. I found the Alliance of Hope on the web one night. It was a life line for me. —A supportive, amazing group of people who had walked a mile in my shoes. I spent hours reading the posts and gaining comfort, hope and strength. I am grateful for this non-profit.

I lost my beloved daughter to suicide in April 2011. I found the site by chance and it has proved to be an amazing support at a time when I had no hope and had lost all faith. The wisdom, compassion and shared humanity provided by the site has kept me going during some very difficult, heart-wrenching times. The fact that I can express my feelings 24 hours a day and receive a response from another "survivor" makes me feel not so alone with my grief. I never thought I would need such a site, but suicide can happen in any family as I have so sadly found out.

It has been 15 months since my brother took his own life. Unexpected death in any instance is devastating, suicide on the other hand is much more so as the emotions that go along with it are numerous. To have a place to go to is a great relief in a time that even the smallest understanding is a light at the end of a very dark tunnel. Alliance of Hope for Suicde Survivors is that light....Thanks, for all that you do...

This forum provides support for unimmaginable grief. I have faced the loss of my brother, parents and grandparents over the last 9 years but the loss of my 19 yr old son to suicided was devistating to say the least!
To have access to people who share your pain, counceling, and information on
what to expect with out having to leave your home (when even brushing your teeth is difficult) is a blessing!
Thank you Alliance of Hope, you are God sent Angels!

My son took his life 16 months ago, and in the beginning I didn't really know what I needed. The Alliance for Hope is a wonderful source of help through the experiences and help found in the forums. But for me, the information written by professionals in the field gave me a great deal of comfort as I struggled to understand what was going on in my son's mind that lead to his death. I have recommended the organization to other survivors. I was most impressed by the fact that Ronnie Walker personally contacted me when I joined the forum, and she actively participates in some of the online discussions in a professional, compassionate way.

Make sure that the organization received ongoing funding through donations and other sources. This would enable greater outreach.

It has been a year and a half since my father took his life. In the months following his death, the Alliance of Hope for Suicide Survivors was a lifeline that I needed so badly. I was on there everyday, multiple times a day. It helps in the healing process so much to be in contact with people who are feeling the same emotions as you. The website also has tons of information for those who wish to immerse themselves in the quest to understand "why" and "how" did this happen. I am forever grateful for having found solace in this website during some very dark days.
