The Network of Friends

about Network of Friends

The Network of Friends brings together survivors from across the country who are committed to saving lives.  We are parents, students, doctors, lawyers, entertainers, housewives and others from all walks of life that have survived traumatic events and either need encouragement or want to provide encouragement to others.

We believe that nothing heals people like the support of their peers.

Another aspect of the network proactively engages with students to prevent school shootings and bullying.  We engage online, by telephone, through seminar, and travel to churches, schools and organizations.  #inthistogether 
Learn About Memberships

He has made me fruitful in my suffering. (Genesis 41:52)

 

Our vision is a worldwide community of healthy survivors who partner with one another to encourage peace in the middle of life’s storms and uncertainty.  We use our suffering to influence good things in the lives of others.  Together, we embrace opportunities for the new normals that are created by change and trauma.

Our mission is simple. We seek to save lives that would be lost because of death by suicide brought on by anxiety or survivor’s guilt, school shootings and other mass attacks.

We seek to help people deal with the inequity of sudden change and find a new normal after traumatic events, sudden death and extreme loss. By providing a strong, reliable network of friends who have been there, we make the journey for those struggling, a lot less impossible.
