“Suicide is a death like no other,
and those that are left behind to struggle with it must confront a pain like no other.
Suicide is not a deathbed gathering;
It rips apart lives and beliefs and it sets its survivors on a prolonged and devasting journey”
(Kay Redfield Jamison, Clinical Psychotherapist and writer)
