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

Rating: 5 stars  

I found Aoh after losing my son a little over two years ago and I continue to come here daily for the support, understanding and validation that losing someone this way causes. Those in my personal life feel I should be done grieving. Moved on. Fortunately they do not understand how shattering and rocked to the core losing someone this way causes. Unfortunately the members here understand all too well. They are the most compassionate, kind, wise and validating group of people I have ever encountered. When support is needed they will lend out a hand and if support is requested they will reach out knowing someone will grab theirs to get through those difficult times that can come out of the blue. Honestly do not know if I could have survived without this forum. Forever grateful.

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

Rating: 5 stars  

I can not tell you what Alliance of Hope has meant to me. After losing my son to suicide I was all alone to deal with the aftermath and complexity that comes with the grief with suicide. Unfortunately those around you do not want to discuss or hear of your loss. They do not understand how difficult it is to work through the loss of someone you love who has taken their own life. There are over 12,000 members unfortunately on the site with too many members joining weekly. But once you introduce yourself you will be met with compassion and understanding. It is a judgment free community of support from people who have all loss someone to suicide. I can guarantee you this that if I did not find Alliance I would not be where I am today. I am early on in my journey but with the help of my virtual travelers I will heal to the best of my abilities.
