    "As a future healthcare professional, I now understand what not to say to someone who has lost a loved one to suicide. I also never thought about the connotation of the word "commit". I now understand that someone doesn't commit suicide, rather they loose their life. Thank you so much for letting me come to your group and experience the feelings one may experience. You truly are a special group."

    "I lost my son to suicide which was a huge shock and has left me totally broken. I have now made it my mission to help raise awareness about mental illness, suicide, bullying, and grief following suicide in my son's honor."
