Bringing together a community of grief and bereavement specialists to connect, educate and empower.
Experiencing a death by suicide can have a profound impact on those left behind. In addition to feelings of shock, guilt, anxiety, anger and rejection, they commonly struggle with daunting “why” questions that have no easy or consoling answers. People bereaved by suicide also present increased risks of depression, posttraumatic stress disorder, and suicidal behavior compared to other bereaved and non-bereaved counterparts. While most research in the field has focused on these adverse outcomes, there is a growing body of evidence that many of those experiencing this tragic loss also report posttraumatic growth—a positive psychological transformation that occurs through a process of meaning-making and struggling with a highly challenging and stressful event.
