Therapy Toronto Psychotherapy Definitions
- Suicide Survivors
- When someone we are attached to commits or attempts to commit suicide, those left behind are sometimes referred to as suicide survivors or completed suicide survivors.
The grief and experience of surviving suicide may be an especially acute, long, and painful grief. Death is a usual life crisis – suicide is an abnormal life crisis that may carry some social stigma. (GM)
