Grieving a death by suicide

You are
not alone.

Do you have a loved one who has taken their own life and you are finding it difficult to accept or understand? This is common. Grieving a suicide can be very destabilizing.

Many feelings can arise in people who are grieving. They look for an explanation, a culprit, a cause. “Why” is a question that is often left unanswered. Don’t hesitate to ask for help. Contact us. We are here for you!
