- SOS: A Handbook for Survivors of Suicide by Jeffrey Jackson can be very helpful. It’s about 30 pages and is free online; just Google the title. Thus it’s really easy to access. It is intended to be a “bite-sized overview”. It focuses on a wide range of feelings with empathy and sensitivity. It was written in 2003, some of the stats/references are dated.
