Losing a loved one is never easy, but losing somebody to suicide can be especially tough. While the shock, confusion, guilt, and grief may be challenging to plow through, there are ways to begin healing.

Seek Support

At Nutmeg State Cremation Society, we've witnessed firsthand how debilitating shock and sadness can be following a suicide. Along with grieving the death of a loved one, you could be experiencing various contradicting emotions. It can be perplexing to comprehend the circumstances behind their demise.

Do not attempt to resolve this issue on your own; seek support. There are several solutions available to help you in through this trying time:

  • When you're experiencing grief, it might be beneficial to seek the help of close friends and family when you're prepared to share your feelings.
  • Join a support network. Being a part of a group of individuals who have been through similar experiences can be a tremendous source of support.
  • Psychiatrists and bereavement counselors can be of assistance. You may wish to receive therapy from a psychologist or psychiatrist specializing in grief counseling as a last option. Individuals who lack access to this facility can attend survivor's outreach programs. They connect you with a volunteer who has had a similar experience.

These sessions assist families in reestablishing their regular routines and a feeling of normality in their life. It is our approach to helping clients through a difficult life stage.
