If you have lost a loved one to suicide, the first thing you should know is that you are not alone.

Over 30,000 people take their own lives each year. This is devastating for the loved ones they leave behind. There are millions like you, known as "suicide survivors" and are trying to cope with this overwhelming loss.  Your reactions and feelings to this sudden and terrible death are completely valid.
