Death by suicide can be difficult to deal with for survivors (those who have lost a loved one to death by suicide). It is important to understand helpful ways to support survivors. Here are a few ideas: Listen, remember positive memories about the person they lost, offer help with practical tasks, avoid going in to problem-solving mode, and do not look for a way to place blame. Huffington post offers a few more ideas here (LINK). It is important to note that if this person needs to reach out to professional help, they may also access help through the hotline mentioned above (1-800-273-8255) or by using LookUp to guide them to more assistance.
When in doubt, always reach out. It could save a life.
