Helping Children and Teens Cope

Children and teens often have been called the forgotten mourners because people didn't believe they grieved a loss. The resources and information for this group continue to grow to help them travel the suicide grief journey with as much support as possible. We provide several articles for support and help with what to say after the loss.

Suicide is occurring too often too soon. Make sure you have support systems in place for yourself and the next generation. Build a better world and do not stay trapped in the grief and loss process of denial. If we can talk about our loss we can help each other to understand why we may be not coping so well on certain dates as certain triggers can take us back to a stage of trauma. Help yourself to identify being bereaved to suicide and you will be able to build a positive transformation from your brokeness. Have faith in yourself and continue to be the best person you can by acknowledging that suicide is an illness that feasts on the vulnerable and usually mentally unwell friends and family. Awareness helps to stop stigmatisation....John Kirwin campaigned to help awareness of mental health, i believe that they are part of the same condition.

Thank you so much for sharing. Have lost too many in the last five years to suicide and just last week- our HS athletic trainer took her life. Her daughter is in our very tight HS youth group- and my husband is her coach. We will see the kids tomorrow. This was really helpful.
