Barb’s story: My life was forever altered as I began my own grief journey with the loss of my youngest son, Michael to suicide September 20, 2018. Moving forward from this unimaginable loss has been the most difficult challenge I have ever faced. I would not have managed without the support of fellow survivors, who truly understand the impact of suicide loss. I hope to provide support to others as they travel their own grief journeys.
