In Memory of all of Those who have Died by Suicide
For anyone who is surviving a loss to suicide, we at A2C wish you much strength, wellness, and support during this time.
Death by suicide is undiscriminating. Losing someone to suicide is an overwhelming and complex experience.
Different from many other types of deaths, suicide leaves us questioning what caused our loved ones to take their lives. As we try to answer this question, we cannot help but to internalize the blame, feeling guilty, and thinking about what we could have done differently. This guilt usually comes in the form of “what ifs” or “if only.” Unfortunately, this is a part of the suicide grief experience of many individuals; it was definitely part of my suicide grief and of the many Survivors of Suicide whom I work with, so here are somethings that may help.
