How to be a Friend to a Survivor of Suicide. For most of us called upon to be with a grieving friend, it isn't the big stuff (a death denying society, etc.) that gets in our way, but the basics. "What do I say?" "How can I help?" "Why did this happen?" "Can we find common ground?".
Oftentimes, those basics become the barriers that make it easier to either say too little or say too much. And, at times, simply just to back away.
Nan Zastrow's son died by suicide. He was 21 years old. Nan Zastrow has done some extraordinary work in the field of bereavement, none more touching than this book, her story, her testimony to her son, Chad. She seldom wavers from her commitment as an advocate and friend for the bereaved. She writes: ""Today, I'm comfortable with being recognized as someone who is willing to talk about suicide and share information based on my own experience. Everyone deserves care and support on the grief journey."
