Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Advance Praise for Touched by Suicide:
"Each year suicide claims tens of thousands of lives, but its victims extend far beyond the annual statistical sum. It is the living, those loved ones left behind to answer the unanswerable and move on with life, who surely are the victims as well. To them, Touched by Suicide will prove a resource of very great worth."
—Gordon H. Smith, United States Senator

"A rich resource of guidance and support written by survivors with candor and compassion intended for those who have been touched by suicide. This book will be invaluable for those who must face the tragedy of suicide in their lives and those who are in a position to support the healing journey of survivors."
—Jerry Reed, Executive Director, Suicide Prevention Action Network (SPAN USA)

"This is a remarkable step-by-step manual for living through the profound chaos that suicide leaves in its wake. This compelling, comprehensive, and inspirational book is written not just for survivors, but for all of us who strive to understand and prevent suicide. .. This is a worthy contribution to the literature of suicide and survival."
—Morton M. Silverman, M.D., Clinical Associate Professor of Psychiatry, The University of Chicago; Editor-in-Chief, Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior

"Touched by Suicide is a floodlit pathway for those tragically thrust into the dark forest of having to survive a loved one’s suicide. It is loaded with straight talk and practical insights, compassion and understanding. Myers and Fine deftly meld their personal and professional experiences, aided by compelling first-person accounts, to translate unfathomable pain into hope. This is the most important reference survivors should read."
—Alan L. Berman, Ph.D., ABPP, Executive director, American Association of Suicidology
