I'm really tired of people acting like the victim had
a choice or made a desicion. If the suicide ended after a long battle with clinical depression then it is not the victim's fault. It is a disease. When people writing these books call it an intentional choice, it perpetuates the stigma of mental health and if it persists, we will forever be in the dark ages when in comes to mental health parity. I will always love my father. He was a great man and a great dad and he had an illness.

Helpful but general - to simplistic. I thought No Time to Say Goodbye was much better written. Maybe because the author lived through this hell herself.

This is a wonderful book...it was very helpful in helping me understand why someone would take their own life. It helped me understand that what I was feeling was very normal. I recommend this book to anyone who has lost a loved one to suicide.

I lost my son to suicide in 1998. He was 26 years old and suffered from Bipolar Disorder. He lived with this disorder from the time of it's manifestation from the age of 8 until finally diagnosed at the age of 25. After his death I struggled with so many feelings that are unique to those left behind by a suicide death. I found in this book that I was not alone in my thoughts and feelings. It helped me reconcile my feelings of guilt and shame and lead me to forgiveness. I have passed this book on to several others in hopes that it will provide the same avenue of healing that it has for me.

I read this book with anticipation since I lost my mother to suicide. Nevertheless, the book seems to be written only as a conduit to Suicide Survivor Support Groups; other grief materials are far more effective and ultimately superior.

This book was the cornerstone for the healing after my brother's suicide. If you are looking for compassion and strength during this touch and go time...it is here. I pick it up still from time to time...around anniversaries...and well...you know - continue the healing process. I think we all know it doesn't go away, but reading this book helped me get up in the mornings and look in the mirror again. I hope it helps you too.

I bought this book nearly four years after my brother took his own life. I wish I'd bought this sooner. The authors did a great job conveying how many of us feel after such a tragedy. This book covers every emotional aspect of suicide survivors and includes a listing of Suicide Prevention and Crisis Centers by state and city.Chapter 3, which covers guilt, was especially helpful because it covers all the what-ifs and should-haves. It explains how that emotion can destroy your health and family, and that there was really nothing you could've done to prevent this from happening. Suicide does not stem from one particular argument or pitfall in a person's life; it is a culmination of things.Chapter 5 is about ambivalence, which covers anger as well as putting the deceased on a pedestal. Another aspect was relief. Those cases I found heartbreaking because of the problems the person put his family through before they died.Chapter 6 talks about the normal depression after the loss versus clinical depression, the latter which many suicides suffer before they die.Chapters 8 through 11 cover the different relationships between the suicide victim and the survivors. I wish they had included a chapter on the friends that were left behind because this doesn't just affect the family. The last chapter covers the siblings, most of which didn't pertain to me. But I did learn from it.The last two chapters of the book cover the pitfalls and healing. This was what I was looking for. In all, this is a good book to read. It is written well and has a straight-forward, honest approach. I read this in two days and plan to pass it on to my family.
