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

Rating: 5 stars  

A few months following my partner's suicide, I was looking for ways to help me in dealing with the grief, guilt, and all the other emotions. Luckily, I found Alliance of Hope and since that day I'm on the forum almost daily. The support, compassion, and understanding I found here far exceeded my expectations. I never imagined the connections that I would make with people from around the world who literally opened their arms to me during the darkest days of my life. It doesn't matter if you're straight, gay, male or female; if you loss your child, spouse, sibling, partner, best friend, or whatever ... everyone here truly cares and offers insight to help navigate the whirlwind of emotions that come with losing a loved one to suicide.

Sadly, I read one review where she didn't feel included due to being queer. All I can say is that as a gay man, I have felt VERY included and supported by the administrators, moderators, and other members of this forum. Not once have I ever been discriminated against nor "shunned" because of this one very minor part of who I am. Suicide knows no boundaries on who it effects ... and this forum knows no boundaries on whom they help.
