SOS: A Handbook for Survivors of Suicide
written by Jeffrey Jackson
This is a book for people who have lost a loved one to suicide, written by someone who has suffered the same loss. In the words of the author, "This book is not intended to be a complete guide for the suicide survivor - it only scratches the surface. I've written this book as a kind of 'bite-sized' overview. It's deliberately short and to the point to make the information inside more accessible. You may even find it useful to carry it around with you for a while and refer to it during difficult times."
Don’t be fooled by the size of this little booklet. It concisely covers a wide range of essential information on every aspect of suicide for those left behind. Small enough to fit in a pocket for support and comfort, perfect for support groups and counseling, from the American Association of Suicidology.
Paperback, 33 pages.

This is by far the most helpful piece of written material on the subject of suicide for those of us who have lost a loved one in this way. I give it to everyone in my support group and anyone else I know who is on this grief journey from losing someone to suicide. Thank you for making this available.
Our LOSS team has used this before and is a great resource. Central NE LOSS Team, Kearney, NE
This is the best resource we have found that helps those who have lost a loved one to suicide process what they are going through. Thank you
I and everyone in my Suicide Support group have found this booklet to be the most informative and helpful piece of written material available. I give one to every new person who comes to our group and it has been such a helpful blessing.
