  • Suicide Grief Counseling

     

    Survivors of suicide represent "the largest mental health casualties related to suicide," said Edwin Schneidman, Ph.D., founding president of the American Association of Suicidology1.

    No one should suffer this loss alone. If your family is experiencing the pain of suicide:

    • It is best to seek professional guidance while you work through some of the issues related to suicide. Ask your family doctor for a referral or, in Jefferson County, contact the Jefferson Center for Mental Health View exit disclaimer policy page for links to third-party websites. at 303-425-0300.
    • The victims of suicide leave behind many other people who are themselves victims: family members, friends, coworkers, classmates and even professional caregivers feel the pain and loss associated with suicide.
    • Grief is an extremely unique and individual and unique process; each person will experience it in their own way and at their own pace.
