We know losing a loved one to suicide is painful and complicated. The grieving process is compromised by an array of mixed feelings - trauma, stigma, blame, guilt, abandonment, anger, conflict, questions.
Below, you'll find a list of trusted resources and partners who are well-equipped to help guide you on your healing journey.
“My name is Amy, and I’m the Donor Engagement Manager for Black Box Project. This mission is personal. After losing my husband to the war in Iraq after our daughter was born, we were wrapped tightly in the hearts of so many wonderful organizations that provided resources along our grief journey.
In being served, I felt strongly about giving back. As I worked to help heal the hearts of families of the fallen, I realized that many of these families lost a loved one in the war at home; one of those was a friend that served with my husband. It became evident that I needed to join a much bigger fight. Through this postvention effort, my goal is to provide a necessary hope to the families that have faced such tragic loss. I’ve walked in deep trenches, and I’m prepared to do that again with others, only this time as a guide. Suicide prevention requires all of us working in tandem, sharing our stories and believing that we will create change with this project.
If there is one thing I would like loss survivors to know, it’s this: hope is available. There will come a day when the memory of your person makes you smile.”
We’re on a mission to find veterans in crisis before it’s too late.
