Alliance of Hope for Suicide Loss Survivors presents
A Moderated Online Forum
Welcome to a place of healing & remembrance.
If you have lost a loved one to suicide,
you are not alone.
We believe no suicide loss survivor should go without support.
This moderated online forum operates like a 24/7 support group – overseen by a mental health prof. and trained team of moderators. We have more than 18,000 members and specific forums for loss type and survivor experiences.
Many support group leaders use our online forum as a supplement to their regular meetings.

Since 2008, the Alliance of Hope has been working to decrease stigma, increase understanding of the suicide loss experience, and provide direct support to survivors.
- Every 40 seconds, someones dies by suicide, leaving 6-8 loved ones grieving devastating loss.
- In the U.S., 45 million people have survived suicide loss.
- Every day, thousands of people seek support after suicide.
Suicide loss survivors share a singular bond. Although each of our situations is unique, we tend to experience similar feelings, questions, and stages of grief. Support groups provide a good opportunity to meet others who understand and can result in deep friendships.
