Finding the Words

This great support guide have been developed by people who have the lived experience of losing someone to suicide to help others affected in the same way. the words will make you feel more comfortable about reaching out to someone bereaved by suicide. 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.
