Stories of Hope and Recovery

Alliance of Hope for Suicide Survivors

Healing Conversations: Healing Conversations is a one-time visit (phone, virtual, in-person) that connects those who have lost a loved one to suicide with trained volunteers who are also survivors of suicide loss. The goal of this connection is to help recent survivors navigate this challenging journey by offering support, connection and resources.

Digital Memory Quilt: This quilt was created by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention in memory of lost loved ones. Click here to add a square to the quilt.

Friends for Survival: The loving outreach of Friends for Survival can bridge the gap between despair and renewed hope. Those whose loss is recent can lean upon the shoulders of those who have made progress in the difficult task of working through grief after a suicide death.  

Taking Care of Yourself: It is imperative that you take care of yourself physically, emotionally, and spiritually. No matter how you deal with your grief, you should not have to cope with your loss alone; be open to letting people help you live through this experience.
