Children, Teens and Suicide Loss

As fellow survivors of suicide loss, we urge you to remember these few but important things:


You are not alone.


There are resources and people to support you.


There is no universal time frame for healing, but you will move forward from the place where you are now.


We wish you strength and courage as you travel through your grieving, toward a place of healing.


Be well,
The AFSP Loss and Healing Council
