Healing Conversations gives those who have lost someone to suicide the opportunity to talk with and receive emotional support from experienced volunteers. These volunteers have experienced suicide loss themselves, and know firsthand the pain associated with this type of loss. They can help provide guidance and empathy, and share useful community resources. Conversations are made available in person, on the phone or by video chat.
Friends for survival
FFS is a national non-profit bereavement outreach organization available to those who are grieving a suicide death of family or friends. We also assist professionals who work with those who are grieving a suicide tragedy. Friends For Survival, organized by and for survivors, has been offering suicide bereavement support services since 1983. All staff and volunteers have been directly impacted by a suicide death.
The National Resource Center for Suicide Prevention and Aftercare (NRC) is a leading resource in the United States for suicide prevention and postvention care. NRC is dedicated to reaching out to those whose lives have been impacted by suicide and connecting them to the best available resources. Families who have experienced a loss through suicide will receive unparalleled support from NRC while they navigate their grief.
Bereavement therapy is a specialized type of therapy for someone who has suffered a loss and is undergoing the process of grief. Those who have lost a loved one to suicide will want to meet with a clinician who is knowledgeable about bereavement after suicide and able to provide grief therapy specifically for these survivors.
