|Have you lost a loved one to suicide?
If the answer is yes, then you are a survivor of suicide.
ADVICE FOR SURVIVORS:
- Even if you feel that you cannot survive, know that you can.
- Feelings of shock, guilt, blame, anger, relief, depression, and isolation
are common responses to grief. These emotions can be overwhelming
but know that they are normal.
- Each survivor grieves in their own way and at their own pace.
- Seek out people who are willing to listen without judging.
- Remember that many people are affected by suicide.
- Seek professional help if needed.
- Take care of yourself – physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
- This may be the hardest thing you will ever do. Be patient and don’t try
to do it by yourself.
- Remember that healing takes time and support.
