The grief journey following a suicide loss is not a quick and easy path. Because people are unique, as are the life experiences of individuals, the road can open up in several ways for each person. No one travels the same way. In Rocky Roads: The Journeys of Families through Suicide Grief, Michelle Linn-Gust, the author of Do They Have Bad Days in Heaven? Surviving the Suicide Loss of a Sibling, guides the family unit with a road map to navigate suicide grief as individuals and also as part of the family unit with the ultimate goal of strengthening the family even after a devastating suicide loss.

Linn-Gust offers us not just a road map, but a knowledgeable and experienced guide across the often torturous and emotion-filled landscape created by the suicide of a family member. She recognizes the uniqueness of each family member s grief work within contexts of family histories, traditions, systems and sub-systems, giving each and every sojourner perspective and confidence that, indeed, they will survive. --Lanny Berman, Ph.D., ABPP, Executive Director, American Association of Suicidology
In a time of tweets and blogs Dr. Linn-Gust has provided a rich and vital travel guide for one of the most treacherous journeys individuals, families, and communities often take; surviving the loss of someone to suicide. Like most journeys we would benefit from the wisdom of those who have traveled that road before, Michelle has not only written about her time on Rocky Roads but she has also gathered the notes of others who have made the journey. This is a trip that chooses you and not one you choose, however for yourself or someone you know who has experienced a loss to suicide please read this book and benefit from the knowledge those who went before you have gained from these Rocky Roads. --Frank R. Campbell, Ph.D.,LCSW,C.T.
Michelle Linn-Gust has for years been a leading and compassionate voice on behalf of the millions of us bereaved by suicide. She continues this important work in Rocky Roads, which takes a novel and needed family-based perspective to help people navigate the pain of suicide s aftermath. --Thomas Joiner, Ph.D., Distinguished Research Professor &The Bright-Burton Professor of Psychology, Florida State University; editor, Suicide and Life Threatening Behavior
