Survivors of Suicide Loss has a group of volunteers who will email and talk with you on the phone about your loss of a loved one through suicide.

These volunteers have all lost someone they love through suicide and have an intimate understanding of what you are going through.

There is no charge for this and the volunteers contribute their time to help others.

You can find the latest list of volunteers here.

I’ve also listed their contact information below for your convenience.  The volunteers are listed by the loss they have experienced if you want to talk with someone having a loss similar to yours.
