Losing someone to suicide is a unique loss like no other, and can lead to a number of conflicting feelings and many unanswered questions. There is no one way to feel or grieve a death by suicide – we all react and grieve differently. It is important to remember that you are not alone – that suicide impacts more people than we often know about.
The BC Bereavement Helpline and the Crisis Centre are hosting a grief support group for those who have been bereaved by suicide. Being with others who have experienced a similar loss has proven to break isolation and create long-term networks of support.
The next group begins in September. This group will be led by two skilled, experienced and caring facilitators. For more information and to find out about registering please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 604-738-9950.
