Coping with the loss of a loved one to suicide is a painful and extremely difficult experience that very few people can understand, often made more difficult by the stigma associated with suicide and the many misconceptions people have about it.

The path to healing and recovery can be challenging and, even, overwhelming, which is why it is so important that those impacted by suicide loss utilize the care, support and resources available to them—including family, friends and religious guides, survivor literature, support groups, self-help classes and mental health professionals.

This Guide provides an overview of the resources, research, activities, support groups and other helpful information and is intended to assist survivors of suicide loss as they move forward on their path to healing.
