After a Suicide


When someone we love dies by suicide, the grieving process can be more complex and even more difficult to resolve. Some natural responses to bereavement by suicide include confusion, guilt and shame and isolation.


If you have been affected by suicide please read this booklet ‘After a Suicide’.

This booklet will help you with the practical issues that need to be faced after a suicide, it talks about some of the emotions that you might be experiencing, and suggests some places where you can get help.



Support can be provided by Cruse Bereavement Care Scotland who will support you after the death of someone close. Face to face and group support is delivered by trained bereavement volunteers. Cruse may also be able to put you in touch with other people who have been bereaved by suicide to share your experiences and feelings.
