Together We Give Hope

Suicide Grief Support


Suicide loss involves a unique grieving process that requires a particular set of resources to help those bereaved. At the Crisis Centre, we are working towards creating a community of those who have had the difficult experience of losing someone to suicide. Connection and education are part of our means to respond to your needs.

This program is driven by individuals who have experienced first hand
the loss of a loved one to suicide. They volunteer their time as part
of a Bereavement Advisory Committee.

Suicide Grief Support Group


“Support groups can offer tremendous comfort and safety in knowing we are not alone. The knowledge that there are others who have some understanding of what we have been through can help us heal and move forward in our grief journey” 

Jude Platzer

The the Crisis Centre of BC and the BC Bereavement Helpline partner in hosting a grief support group for those bereaved by suicide. Being with others who have experienced a similar loss helps reduce isolation, increase coping skills, and create long-term networks of support. This group is led by two skilled, experienced and caring facilitators.

Additional Resources

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 the death by suicide—we all react and grieve differently.  And most importantly, it is important to remember that you are not alone—suicide impacts more people than we often know about.
