Bereaved by Suicide Service (Berkshire)
Feelings after a suicide
Bereavement is a painful experience for anyone, but when you lose someone because of suicide, it can be particularly devastating.
As well as coping with your loss, the added complexity of suicide can be incredibly distressing and cause you to experience strong – sometimes overpowering – feelings.
Every person experiences bereavement differently and your feelings may change from day to day. Over time you may feel a wide range of emotions. Talking about what you’re going through and how you feel can’t change what’s happened, but it can help in other ways.
While those around you may want to help support you, they may also be struggling to cope at this difficult time. So having someone else to listen and help can be very important.
