Support for relatives and surviving dependents

A suicide leaves a deep mark on the people who are left behind. Whether it is family members, friends and colleagues, or even strangers who have witnessed a suicide. The feeling of grief, pain and helplessness can be overwhelming.

For the surrounding community, it is as important as it is difficult to process what they have experienced. Unfortunately, not every suicide can be prevented. For various reasons. If a person decides to commit suicide, it also affects those around them.

The bereaved often wonder what they could have done. Many feel grief and some blame themselves. There are also many options for support for those left behind after a suicide.

Suicides are exceptional psychological situations: also for witnesses and emergency personnel.

Bystanders who have witnessed a suicide, as well as rescue and emergency personnel, often have problems coming to terms with what they have experienced.

Social support or professional help offers are also a possibility for them to exchange ideas and find ways to deal with what they have experienced.
