Few people like to talk about grief and loss, and many of us feel awkward around someone who has been bereaved by suicide, even if they are a good friend or close colleague. We worry about saying the wrong thing and can put off contacting them, and before long it may seem too late to say anything at all. This guide will give you the confidence to support them now.
This excellent guide provides people affected by suicide with both practical information and emotional support. People who have been bereaved by suicide have used their experiences to lead development of the guide from Public Health England and National Suicide Prevention Alliance.
