Suicide is like a "grenade going off within a family or community," In the aftermath, survivors are left profoundly wounded and deeply distressed. Many fight with weakening emotions, altered relationships, and challenging responsibilities. Although each situation is unique, some issues are commonly shared by survivors.
According to research it has been found that it is helpful to know about common survivor reactions. Being informed does not make the reactions disappear. That will take time ... and probably a great deal of grief-work. It will help though, to know that what you are feeling is commonly felt by other survivors and that it is possible to survive and go beyond just surviving.
Are you or someone you love at risk of suicide? Where can you seek support?
