Has someone you
love died by suicide?
You are not alone.
Heartache2Hope provides healing support to adults who have experienced a suicide loss. We offer 12-week support groups, drop-in group meetings, individual support and community education.
Thank you to everyone who participated, donated, sponsored, and volunteered in the first annual Heartache2hope Walk2Remember.
You helped make this event a huge success. We are so very grateful for your presence and your support. There were more than 250 participants and more than 800 donors and sponsors.
We raised more than $90,000—tripling our goal of $30,000—and donations are still coming in! Proceeds from the Walk2Remember will help us continue to provide hope and healing after suicide loss to adults in Halton, Peel, Hamilton and across Ontario and expand our supportive services to youth and multicultural groups.
We are so grateful for the opportunity to walk with you in honour of your loved ones and for your support. Your generosity has warmed our hearts!
We look forward to sharing the final results soon.
If you did not get the opportunity to donate and would like to—our Walk2Remember website will be accepting donations through the end of June.

What Our Clients Say...
“I feel better able to deal with what has happened.”
“Still working on it but have come along way. At the beginning I was not sure I could continue after my son’s death. Thanks to [Heartache2Hope], I feel like I can survive this.”
“Surviving a suicide is a very unique kind of grief. As a family, we attend therapy sessions with a Therapist who provides general grief counseling. While both types of therapy are beneficial, I feel the support from Heartache2Hope is much more effective.”
“It helped me tremendously!”
"Heartache2Hope has made an incredible difference in my life, and I cannot thank them enough. The resources and counseling they provide is invaluable, and I met a community of wonderful people who support me unconditionally. I hope others can find peace and support through this organization."
"There are no words for how much the support I have received has been so valuable."
"I don’t know how we would have got through the loss of our daughter without the assistance of Heartache2Hope."
"I am so appreciative of this program because it is particularly dedicated to survivors of a death by suicide. It is a unique program for people with this tragic experience that no one else can truly understand especially when it is your child. They saved my life and brought me through the darkest time of my life the loss of my son to suicide. Forever grateful."
"The program exceeded my expectations in every way. Amazing, supportive, understanding facilitators. The readings were informative and helpful. My experience in the Closed Group has been extremely helpful in helping me deal with the emotions and grief related to my sister's death.”
