Review for ALLIANCE OF HOPE FOR SUICIDE SURVIVORS , Evanston, IL, USA
When my best friend killed herself in October of this year, I just did not know what to do. I have a lot of support but I wanted to find some online help as well. It took me a few days of reading to finally register, but I am really glad I did. Everyone was very warm and comforting. I am agnostic and I definitely felt very welcomed, like there was a place for me here. People were very gentle with me and reassured me that everything I was feeling was normal. Reading about others' experiences and comforting others has been a huge source of comfort for me. Losing someone to suicide is very different from a natural or accidental death, and everyone on the board understands that. I have seen nothing but compassion for others there, and it has been a godsend. I cannot imagine how I would have ever gotten through this so far without this board. So many people surviving a loved one's suicide have no support, and not only does this board provide that, but it also shows that people can heal, and have hope for happiness in the future.
