Alliance of Hope for Suicide Survivors

Ronnie Walker, LMHC, established Alliance of Hope in 2008 after the loss of her stepson to suicide in 1995. The organization works to provide resources to those who have lost a loved one to suicide and build a sense of community for those who are bound together by similar loss. Alliance of Hope is a non-denominational and non-discriminating group that recognizes the unique differences in cultures and faith traditions around the world in dealing with the aftermath of suicide, and helps those left behind to not only survive, but to lead joyous and meaningful lives. Visitors to the site can find a blog, bookstore, memorials, and a community forum that is supervised and monitored by a mental health counselor and trained team of survivor moderators.
