The Effects of Family Life after Suicide

“The loving alliance ofhope and grief thatblesses both our breakingapart and our comingtogether again.”

 Bridgewater, N.J. (September 23, 2013) –The pain and suffering that caused a loved one to end their own life is unexplainable to almost everyone.

When a family member completes suicide the surviving family members are left with questioning their selves; was there something we did? On the other hand this leaves loved ones with a bad taste in their mouths; how could THEY do this to ME? In reality, suicide is the final attempt after the victim has cried out for so long. With that being said, this is usually the reason why family members live a life full of grief because they feel as though the suicide could (and should have) been prevented.

There are various groups and counseling services that are dedicated to those who have lost someone due to suicide. The Alliance of Hope organization is dedicated to suicide survivors. The organization provides healing support for people coping with the shock, excruciating grief and complex emotions that accompany the loss of a loved one to suicide.
