When someone goes through the tragedy that is losing a loved one to suicide they are called a "survivor of suicide loss." I became a survivor of suicide loss on July 19, 2011. I was 23 years old and my mother Joanie had ended her own life.
I'm not writing from the perspective of a dad. I'm writing from the perspective of having lived in my own personal hell as an early teen -- one of which no one was aware, but from which I could see no hope.
