Review for ALLIANCE OF HOPE FOR SUICIDE SURVIVORS , Evanston, IL, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

After my son took his life by suicide on May 16th 2010, I felt so isolated from everything and everyone that I had once considered a comfort zone, that I truly did not believe I would ever be able to function normally again. I could not communicate with very many people because unfortunately I was on a journey that only people that actually lose a loved one to suicide can understand. I found the Alliance of Hope online as I was desperately searching to find a support group that I could join. This journey of healing is very painful and without the Alliance of Hope I am not sure that I be where I am one year after losing my son. The members and Moderators are the most wonderful and caring people that always have big hugs for you on your really bad days and encouragement for every baby step that a survivor takes. Thanks Alliance of Hope for being there when I really needed understanding and guidance.
