I lost my 16-year-old daughter, my only child and only family, and was suicidal. We had struggled through a nasty divorce, genteel poverty and other difficulties. She was a senior who had been admitted to several Ivy League colleges and we were looking forward to a brighter future. I sought help from several different resources but none really helped until I found Survivors of Violent Loss Program. It is the only group that understands there are secondary victims and how to help us.
