Suicide Resources for Survivors

Compiled by Elaine Ducharme, Ph.D, ABPP

  1. 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.
  2. The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. This is the text to the page that has some links regarding help for teens and children:
