After A Suicide Loss

A suicide loss is often devastating, confusing, and traumatic for loved ones and community members. Postvention following a suicide death can include short-term and long-term support as well as individual, family, and organization/community support.

Postvention refers to the responses, resources, and interventions that provide emotional support, community networks, and culturally-appropriate support and guidance to individuals, families, and communities impacted by a suicidal crisis and/or a suicide death.
