The hope4u foundation was founded by Director Diane Russell.
The Hope4u foundation was created from her lived experience of suicide after her son died from Suicide.
Diane became involved in the local community, supporting others that had a family member die from suicide.
Diane said " It was difficult to grieve from a death that nobody understood."
Grief from a suicide is unique because we dont always know the answers to why they died.
