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)
You can also contact the The Crisis Text Line by texting 741-741 at anytime. A live, trained Crisis Counselor receives the text and responds, all from a secure online platform.
