The intimacy of such a small group has helped us tremendously.

I called the Florida Initiative for Suicide Prevention after a family member took his life and our family needed help. I live in another part of the state and needed referrals for groups and other resources. FISP made contact with and provided such compassion and support for my family. I will be forever grateful.
