People bereaved by suicide understandably struggle to cope, and as a direct result some feel suicidal. Many bereaved families worry that another ‘significant other’ might also die by suicide, but are often too frightened to verbalise this to the person they are concerned about. Equally, the bereaved person in crisis, can often be anxious about disclosing this to their family, as they are already grieving the loss of a family member to suicide. This free online suicide prevention training by Zero Suicide Alliance provides guidance on how to ask this difficult question and how to respond. This training is relevant to everyone, including those bereaved by suicide and professionals.
