Silenced by Stigma

Why is there no attempt survivor network like Alanon or AA?!

It turns out there is one - Suicide Anonymous. There are very few resources for attempt survivor and even less research on how they stay alive. This topic is something I have ranted about, both outwardly and inwardly, since the early days of my grief. Heidi Bryan, both an attempt and suicide loss survivor, is one person who's come out as an attempt survivor and who keeps a website devoted to staying alive. She is one of the vew people who has continued to speak publicly throughout my whole grief journey thus far. I wonder - is it because she's been doubly affected?
