Encouraging Voices Featured in "Seeking Hope"

In a book review in the Fall 2011 issue of AAS's "Surviving Suicide" newsletter, editor Ginny Sparrow says the recently published Seeking Hope: Stories of the Suicide Bereaved "is like a support group in your very own home."

Edited by two dedicated women in the suicide prevention field, both Michelle Linn-Gust, Ph.D. and Julie Cerel, Ph.D. share their personal stories through loss by suicide, and recruited 15 other voices to share their journey. All stories possess the gift of time, and it’s encouraging for a newly bereaved reader to have a peek onto the “other side” of sudden loss.

The book's contributors are from all backgrounds and walks of life, including stories from both men and women survivors of suicide loss.

The intimacy of these stories is sure to leave the reader truly touched.

A bonus feature of Seeking Hope is that proceeds from the book support a fund for bereavement research at the American Association of Suicidology. For more book reviews from AAS, please click here.
