The author of this article, a police chaplain, offers some suggestions for helping people bereaved by suicide. These include: 1) being honest about how the person died; 2) accepting feelings such as anger; 3) leaving judgement of the victim to God; 4) replacing rejection with acceptance; 5) remembering that just being there is of value to the bereaved; & 6) helping the bereaved to forgive the victim & to forgive themselves.
