Resources for Survivors of Suicide Loss

We are sorry about the death of your friend or family member. The shock and pain experienced by friends and family following the suicide of a loved one can seem almost unbearable. It is important for you to know that you are not alone. The following resources allow everyone to learn more or get help.

Nationally, suicide is the second leading cause of death for young adults aged 24-34. Nearly 50,000 individuals in the United States take their own lives each year (confirmed suicide deaths). Cumulatively, this amounts to hundreds of thousands of individuals who have experienced firsthand what you are going through right now.

When an individual takes their own life, the people they leave behind are often referred to as survivors of suicide loss. Survivors may be family members, friends, co-workers, neighbors, clinicians, first responders, community members, or anyone impacted by a suicide death. Each individual situation is different.
