My name is Holly. I am 26 years old and at 16 lost my father to suicide. I found him hanging in my room and that image will be one that will stay with me forever.
I created a group on face book about a year and a half ago called ‘Families Dealing with Suicide’. To date I have around 530 members. I am on this group everyday an do my very best to reply to everyone that comments or posts to the wall.
I know what it is like to lose someone to suicide, the feelings associated with that type of loss, the confusion and I also know how it feels to try it too. It will be 10 years in September without my dad, and every day is just as hard as the first. Everyday is a step further away from the last time I saw, kissed, cuddles and talked to my dad.
I want to be able to help people. I am no councellor, just a girl who has been through it and come out the other side.
Please visit and join my group on facebook. There are lots of stories on there from members and everyone there knows and understands the pain. xxx
