Together We Give Hope

Suicide Grief Support

Losing someone to suicide can be a deeply challenging and unique experience that requires understanding, compassion, and support.  At the Crisis Centre of BC, we are committed to creating a safe and caring community for those who have endured the pain of suicide loss. 

Our team is here if you seek resources to support yourself, someone you know, or your community. Contact us at

The Crisis Centre provides a range of programming and services for those who have been impacted by suicide loss with the aim of fostering connection, information and healing:

  • Support and resources for communities, organizations and individuals after a suicide.
  • Events and activities that foster healing and connection (ie. Cup of Tea for Soul series, International Surivors of Suicide Loss Day)
  • Training and Workshops
  • Volunteer opportunities for those who have lost someone to suicide to support our programming or join our Bereavement Advisory Committee

Individual and Community Support


During the aftermath of a devastating loss to suicide, the impact can be deeply felt by many in the community – those who knew and loved the person. 

In the days and weeks following a suicide, the Crisis Centre can often provide support to help individuals, communities and organizations. Our resources can be made available to various settings including schools, faith communities, and workplaces.
