Surviving a Suicide

Grieving: What to expect when a loved one has died by suicide?

Know that this may be the worst you will ever feel. You may experience many different emotions, some of them all at once: denial, shock, confusion, guilt, anger, and PAIN — this is very normal. It is important to know that you can SURVIVE the pain. There may be times when you don’t think you can, but it is possible.

Survivor Support Groups offer an opportunity for people who have lost a loved one by suicide to connect with other survivors in a safe and healing environment.
