There are many other types of grief support. We find that gathering with other Survivors of Suicide Loss offers the greatest support, but each person is different, every journey is different. Sometimes we also need more than one resource. There are also General Bereavement Groups, Parent Groups, Faithed Based Groups and others.
The mission of The Compassionate Friends is to assist families toward the positive resolution of grief following the death of a child of any age and to provide information to help others be supportive. They are a safe resource for families that have lost a child by suicide as well as any other loss.
