Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide (SOBS)

How you may feel if you've been affected by suicide, how to get help if you've been bereaved by suicide.

Bereavement by suicide is very different from any other bereavement and can give rise to all the emotions following any loss.
There can often be many unanswered and unanswerable questions. 

Remember that it is your grief process, unique to you, and the emotions you experience are a natural part of a journey you will make and you are the only person who knows how you feel.

Your feelings are normal, but may seem overwhelming and distressing - look for help.

See what mental health organisations may be able to help if you've been bereaved by suicide and you think it might help to discuss what you are feeling and meet people in a similar situation.
