The loss of a loved one by suicide is often shocking, painful and unexpected. The grief that ensues can be intense, complex, and long term. Each person will experience it in their own way and at their own pace.
Suicide Survivors' Club (SSC) is an organization dedicated to ending the stigma of loss by suicide through integrative art and narrative tools that support loss survivors. SSC provides support and education to help individuals process their grief with the hope they will heal and restore their lives.
"Complexity of the Process"
"A Labor of Love"
“As a family therapist specializing in grief I was most impressed with the way in which this series captures the internal world of a particular family grieving a suicide death. One can hear in each family member’s words how differently they experienced their loss developmentally and how they evolved over time.”

“These books should help any reader to better comprehend the complexity of the process of recovery from the suicide of a loved one, that it can’t be sorted into neat boxes, that it takes a long long long time, and that much of it involves living an ordinary life, an ordinary life that makes acres of room for grieving and healing.”
David Morris, Ph.D.
