Resources for SOS

YWBB is an incredibly important resource for me, but I also found some other sources of assistance such as the AFSP to be very helpful for finding more local resources. What have you found helpful? Let's fill this thread with resources for those in similar circumstances.

In the UK, we have a charity called Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide which runs monthly support groups in several locations. I go to the London one sometimes. It's for anyone who has lost a loved one to suicide but there a good few spouses.

One of the best books I read was Griving a Suicide by Albert Hsu. The book is written from a Christian perspective (and quotes Scripture), so it might not be helpful if that isn't your background, but it helped me greatly with reconciling DH's death and my faith.
