Impacted Families & Friends
“Is This the Night: Finding Inner Peace” is a conversational self-care guide. It was developed in response to the growing number of families & friends impacted by the recent suicidal crisis of a loved one - from struggling with suicidal thinking, to non-suicidal self-injury, to attempts. It’s one of the few resources we have available right now.
Our goal is to create a tapestry of hope.
Why Family/Friends now? Because it’s long overdo. Why here? Because it allows us to reach the broadest spectrum of families throughout the world who are in the shadows, held hostage by fear as the result of societal prejudice & discrimination. The time is now to let our voices be heard.
The newly launched national “home base” and safe haven is www.avoiceatthetable.org. A Voice at the Table seemed the obvious location and the site is being revamped to accommodate for the Family/Friends resources (slim as they are right now), videos, podcasts, webinars, forums, conferences, Twitter Chats, books and blogs, presentation dates/locations, pamphlets, whatever we can find...and more.
