Editorial Reviews

Over four million people a year in the U.S. mourn the tragic suicide deaths of family members. Suicide devastates family members for many years; family survivors are at a greater risk of suicide themselves and the pain ripples out to entire communities. In this video, family survivors reveal their intimate stories and aching pain to assist other survivors and to help the broader community understand the unique and terrible grief of suicide.

Religious communities experience particular pain because of faith issues. This documentary explores Protestant, Catholic, Jewish, and Greek Orthodox responses to suicide. The church can be a "healing station" in helping survivors find their way to recovery.

Hosted by legendary folksinger Judy Collins. The key mental health expert is Dr. Kay Redfield Jamison, professor of psychiatry at Johns Hopkins University.

I purchased this shortly after a woman I had come to care for deeply completed suicide. This DVD helped me to understand that I was not losing my mind and that all of the crazy feelings and emotions I was dealing with were in fact normal.

It tells the stories of a number of families who have suffered the loss of a loved one to suicide and their attempts to deal with it. Faith is a main theme throughout, coming from the perspective of primarily Christianity but also a couple of Jewish clergy as well.

After having viewed this DVD about a half dozen times already, I can tell you that it has been very healing for me. When I feel a jag of grief or pain or feel a crying spell come on I put the DVD on, and I just find that it helps me to hear the stories that these people have to say. I actually like these people in this DVD. It would be good to sit down with them in person and discuss it further.

Judy Collins is the host of this documentary, and she does an excellent job of doing her part in communicating the need to educate the public about suicide and the taboos associated with it.

This DVD, "Fierce Goodbye," has been a lifeline for me and my very personal attempt to understand and heal from this tragedy in my life.

I bought this for a friend who lost her mother to suicide. I was very pleased with it and thought it was well done. I particularly liked that different families and situations were portrayed. This is the only DVD I found on suicide that wasn't directed specifically toward teens, and it is very good, thankfully.

Excellent for all who have been touched by suicide. Helps them to realize they are not "going crazy" when experiencing this special grief.

This has helped us in the process of recovery after our son completed suicide. This was used in our Surviivors of Suicide sessions so we bought it to view again and try to help others who are having to deal with the unexpected fierce goodbye.

Sad subject & so little available resources. I strongly recommend. If cost bothers you check with local library. I bought this copy as a gift but my library had this.
