Moving on from a loved one's suicide

A group of Ohioans tell the stories of how a loved one's suicide affected their families.

This morning, on the way to work, I heard a compelling story on a Cleveland radio station in which a local radio personality, David Barnett, shared the story of his brother Frank's suicide.  His engaging story and discussion with local families affected by suicide--of spouses, children, even parents--is sensitive and well told.  

There are a lot of resources out there to help those struggling with problems that could lead to suicide. One resource that I just learned about this morning is the Suicide Prevention Education Assocation, a Cleveland-based group that does outreach to young people in the area.  congratulations on their work.  Are there other resources from around the country that offer similar services?
