Survivors of suicide are one of the most neglected classes in the "therapeutic community." The emotional turmoil one confronts following the suicide of a loved one is comparable to no other. There are few resources capable of dealing effectively with the emotional state that results. I studied in the field of suicidology (what there was of it at the time) and witnessed the growth of an excellent organization called Survivors of Suicide
These groups are now nationwide and in addition to being composed of those who lost someone through suicide, they have available special counselors trained through the American Association of Suicidology (AAS). The AAS was founded by Dr Ed Schneidman, long recognized as the world's leading authority on suicide.
It's unfortunate this group receives so little media attention but that's consistent with avoidance of all matters related to suicide. Survivors of Suicide
This website links to a national directory of SOS support groups. The services are available at no cost in some regions and at very minimal cost in others. Far, far less than you would pay an independent counselor.
I wish you the very best and you have my deepest sympathy.
