SAVE Suicide Bereavement Support

Suicide Awareness Voices of Education (SAVE) was founded by survivors of suicide loss in Minneapolis in 1990, and people bereaved by suicide have always been a central part of the mission, goals, and history of SAVE, which now serves communities across the country.
