Suicide: Survivors – A Guide For Those Left Behind by Adina Wrobleski
“Suicide: Survivors is a wonderful book published on suicide and suicide grief. The author, Adina Wrobleski, was the original founder of SAVE, and an expert on suicide. She has spent many years studying the subject after her daughter, Lynn, died by suicide in the late 1970’s. Reading this book is a good “first step” for someone beginning the arduous journey of trying to work through suicide grief.” –family member review. This book can be ordered directly from SAVE.
