One year ago I launched 4 the love of Evan in memory of brother. This website and blog profiles my experience of suicide loss and gives voice to many important issues about suicide prevention.
From reading your comments and messages, it seems that 4 the love of Evan has helped people in grief and families concerned about their loved ones. It also educates the general public about suicide, part of a larger movement by many to change the stigma and taboo surrounding suicide.
Some of the most popular posts and pages in the past year include:
- Stop saying committed suicide
- My story
- Meet Evan
- Best and worst things to say to someone in grief
- Three years later and “I am alive”
- Memorial Wall
More photos have been added to the memorial wall, which something that makes me feel conflicted. While I want the memorial wall to be a place where you can honor and share your love for those you have lost, it also represents that we are still losing people every day – proving that efforts for suicide prevention have never been more urgent.
There have been close to 10,000 views in the past year. Does that mean you like what you see? Please tell me if there is something you want to see more of, less of – or not at all!
