Suicide Survivor: Unpacking Suicide
It's a senario that you never would have imagined yourself in. A chapter being written into your life without your knowledge, understanding, approval or warning. Someone you love or know has died by suicide. Your mind and heart are going a mile a minute as you try to ground yourself into this new reality. Your body is in shock, your mind in confusion, denial and wrestling with the Why?, and your emotions on a roller coaster. And as your mind races, attempts to process this new reality and questions flood your mind people more times than not begin to question what suicide is. A valid question and it helps to know something about the breadth and depth of suicide.
Some facts about suicide......
Suicide Survivor: Children
It happened, you're sitting in the funeral service and the speaker comments on the fact of how the person passed. Not a problem typically unless you're a suicide survivor and more importantly if your child is with you and no one has explained or discussed with them this concept of suicide let alone that someone they loved or knew has passed in that fashion. The questions will immediately flood their system as they begin to wrap the mind around what is suicide.
