Have you lost someone to suicide?

When someone takes their own life, those of us left behind, the bereaved, often experience a very complicated form of grief caused by a combination of feelings, thoughts and behaviours.  These feelings can be particularly intense and overwhelming.  If you are currently grieving know that you are not alone, and that help is available.  It is vital that as individuals and communities we respond to people bereaved by suicide with compassion and continue to support them through their grief.  For more information see the download:
