Sometimes in the course of grief, we find it's difficult to read, to focus, to concentrate. People hand us books and we want to read them, but we can't, at least for now. The Internet now provides us with videos on a myriad of suicide- related topics. Below you'll find a selection reflecting a variety of topics. Each one is prefaced with a description to explain what it is before you watch it.
