Friends who have FLIPPED THE SWITCH:



  • As a future healthcare professional, I now understand what not to say to someone who has lost a loved one to suicide. I also never thought about the connotation of the word "commit". I now understand that somone doesn't commit suicide, rather they loose their life. Thank you so much for letting me come to your group and experience the feelings one may experience. You truly are a special group.

  • Your foundation gave me just what I needed to become more at peace with myself by giving me the opportunity to help others. I seriously can't thank you all enough for giving me the opportunity to work with you all. Thank you for everything.
