Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States.

There is no way to calculate how many loved ones each death touches. The grief process after losing a loved one to suicide is a horrific, life shattering experience. It leaves more questions than answers, and the degree of pain it leaves in its wake is immeasurable.

After losing her father to suicide in 2016,

an unexpected book was born. 

R.J. Belle writes a heartfelt piece detailing her journey through grief and sharing what she learned along the way about family bonds, broken loyalties, healing, and herself.

 

"Losing someone so important in my life to suicide was a hard blow. It forced me to examine all the things I didn't understand about mental illness and suicide. I am determined to help educate others about suicide prevention, and be a voice for those who contemplate making a permanent decision over what is most likely a temporary situation.

By sharing my story I aim to comfort those who face the same type of loss. It is a roller coaster but it's not one that you have to face alone."

-R.J. Belle

Have you lost a loved one to suicide and need a resource?

American Foundation for Suicide Prevention can help.

This book isn't about war or politics - it is about figuring out

what it takes to move forward AFTER the war. I wrote this book

to raise awareness of what our warriors need most when they

return, what the government does and doesn't provide and why there is a high demand for private non-profits to fill the gaps.

Make no mistake - we are in this period of recovery and rehabilitation for decades to come.

 

AFTER also introduces the non-profit organization

Warrior Foundation~Freedom Station which has taken on the task of helping our combat-injured men and women make the daunting transition from military to civilian life. 


It's not about the war. It’s about the warrior. 

100% of the proceeds benefit Warrior Foundation~Freedom Station.
