"In loving Memory"- etched in stone

The death of someone close to us is one of life’s most stressful events. When the death is from suicide, family and friends must cope with sadness at the loss plus all their feelings of confusion and sometimes even anger. It takes time to heal and each of us responds differently.




Grief After a Suicide is Complicated by Feelings of:

  • Shock and disbelief
  • Anger and helplessness
  • Guilt and shame
  • Depression and sadness
  • Not knowing why the person committed suicide 

We may need help to cope with the changes in our lives.

But in the end, coping effectively with bereavement is vital to our mental health. If someone close to you has just committed suicide, RDCVSU is here to provide support and information.
