Remembering and writing about someone you’ve lost can trigger very strong emotions, which can have therapeutic benefits, but writing is not a substitute for professional therapy. If writing about who you lost is too painful, please stop and speak to someone who can help.
If you’re thinking about suicide, are worried about a friend or loved one, or would like emotional support, the Lifeline network is available 24/7 across the United States.
CALL: 1(800)273-TALK (8255)
NEW: The new national suicide and crisis lifeline can be accessed 24/7 by dialing or texting 988.
