Postvention Loss - Alliance for Suicide Prevention of Larimer County

Postvention after a Suicide Loss

Postvention after a suicide loss refers to the support and resources provided to individuals, families, and communities following a suicide. It aims to address the emotional and mental health needs of those affected, prevent additional suicides, and promote healing and resilience. Postvention can include a range of activities such as crisis counseling, support groups, memorial services, education and training on suicide prevention, and outreach to at-risk populations. It is a critical component of suicide prevention efforts, as it can help individuals and communities cope with the aftermath of a suicide and reduce the risk of further suicide attempts. How one responds depends on who they are in the community.

By working together, we can help create a community-wide network of support that promotes healing, resilience, and suicide prevention.
