Review for Alliance of Hope for Suicide Loss Survivors, Evanston, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Grief support groups for suicide loss survivors is unavailable in my community and I found Alliance of Hope to be easily accessible, always available, much more than a meeting once a week for an hour or two. Members are supportive and understand the devastating and complicated loss of suicide. My raw emotions surrounding the death of my child are always met with compassion and kindness.

Review for Alliance of Hope for Suicide Loss Survivors, Evanston, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The aftermath of a suicide is not something to be taken lightly and those who haven't been touched by such a devastating experience, are often not the right person to help the bereaved. To understand what the survivor goes through, you unfortunately would need to have the personal experience of losing somebody to suicide. I found that it is crucial for a survivor’s future path to get guidance from another who has worn those shoes. Without judgement, they are able to understand the extremity of emotions, fears and anxiety that follows such an event. Sharing a piece of your heart with others are more healing than advice shouted from the side lines.
Alliance of Hope is a resting place for the broken hearted.
