Description

This collection of true stories will invite you to lean into the process of understanding the larger implications of how suicide affects others. This book poses several questions. What happens to the people left behind when someone commits suicide? How do the survivors navigate the grieving process? Which methods do they use? Do they ever recover from such a profound trauma? These questions are answered through the written submissions of the 26 contributors to this work. Each year in the United States, approximately 40,000 people commit suicide, making suicide the tenth leading cause of death for Americans. The number of annual suicides in the United States is double that of the number of homicides. For every completed suicide, there are approximately six survivors. This means roughly 240,00 suicide loss survivors were created in the United States just this year.show more
