If you are someone you know is grieving the death by suicide of a loved one then this recently published guide by the HSE may be of assistance and comfort.
Launched earlier this year by the HSE, “You Are Not Alone” was developed to offer support and reassurance to those grieving the death by suicide of someone.
It has been developed by a small group of people comprising individuals who have lost loved ones through suicide and HSE Resource Officers working in the area of suicide prevention.
While producing this guide, group members shared personal, honest and heartfelt accounts of their experience of losing their loved ones through suicide.
The “You Are Not Alone” guide contains information on:
- Taking care of the practical matters
- What the person may be feeling
- Getting through and creating a new future
- Help and support#
It has been designed to allow the reader to choose what sections are most appropriate for them.
It is not intended as something you need to read through from cover to cover.
