View Full Version : Resources and supports for families of suicide attempt survivors?

Hi all,

I've recently discovered an unusual gap in our local services and I was hoping you could point me to some good online resources...

There are tonnes of stories and resources and support for people who have lost someone to suicide, but there's nothing in our area for people who are trying to process having a loved one attempt suicide, survive, then return home.

People in that position often are at a loss about how to support the person, if they need to make any changes to the home, and often live in fear that the person will attempt again, or worse, that they might trigger it.

I'm wondering if you know of a good place people can turn for support so they can be the type of parent/sibling/child/spouse we all wish we had in that situation.
