——————————————————————————————————————————–

Out of the Shadows evolved from a suggestion taken at a TSPN Advisory Council meeting regarding an outlet for supporting suicide survivors and promoting local support group meetings.  Each edition of this bimonthly newsletter include articles and poetry associated with the grief and recovery process, and also artwork from various sources. It will also include a remembrance section for people who have died by suicide, contact information for local support groups, and information about the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

The Network is actively soliciting articles and artwork for forthcoming editions; these may be submitted to the TSPN central office at [email protected] with the subject line “OOS Submission”. Feedback and suggestions can also be sent to this address with the subject line “OOS Feedback”.
