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.

Using the online forum for suicide survivors. The sharing of experiences and the education provided by professionals in the field are such a help in dealing with the unthinkable. It is very easy to access.

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.

My wife took her life 2 years ago. I wrote in once or twice and found the responses helpful. However, I go on the site frequently to read about other peoples experiences. That is where I find the most solace. The site allows me my privacy while participating by reading other posts. Thank you for that. I am greatful.

I found the Alliance of Hope for Suicide Survivors when I had nearly given up looking for a support group. If was a huge relief to find a place where people knew what I was going through. I was finally able to communicate with other parents who had lost a child to suicide and it reassured me that I was not alone.

I'm so glad they are there to help.

The Alliance of Hope is a life line in the aftermath of suicide. It has helped me through my grieving process better than any place or anyone could. The members are amazing people who understand just what this journey is about. They have become part of my family and I will cherish them all the days of my life.

After my brother-in-law died by suicide on June 6, 2011, I searched for help with my own grief and information on how to help my 6 year old niece. I joined Alliance of Hope and found a second family in an instant. This place is an absolute God send to survivors. The help you receive by members and moderators is beyond anything I could have imagined. I will be forever grateful for everyone on the forum and love them all!

My niece was a doctor who was 36 yrs. old and took her own life. My entire family was devistated. Nothing like this ever happened to my normal all american family. This organization helped my sister get thru some very hard times. It is so difficult to take the pain away from someone who has had a family member take their own life. This site has given my sister and I some comfort by sharing our sadness and experience with others who have gone thru similar experiences. I am not saying that this is a cure by any means but it does provide peace to many people who must endure the pain that something like this can cause. I decided to donate the money that I was able to give to this Alliance and I will make it an annual contribution as long as my finances allow.

I think I covered this in the answer to my opinion of the Alliance of Hope. It is a very wonderful and worthwhile organization. That is why I donate money to it and view the postings.. It helps my heart.

I would make the organization bigger and easier to access or more publicity,, but I guess advertising suicide is not a good topic.. but maybe the site could be a little easier to navigate.. but I think this would take money,, and I will try to give more whenever I can....

I found this site years ago - I had lost my older brother to suicide in 2005 but was still grieving and having difficulty with the loss, years later.

The site is a really great place for people to share their pain and have others come alongside them for support and to share
experiences.

The site is technically easy to navigate and one thing I always liked were all the different categories for posts which enable people to find a topic they need at the time. It is also very well moderated.

People who suffer this specific type of loss, really need a confidential place where they can find support. I have often been thankful this site was out there when I - and others - needed it.
