In this article, the author discusses the confusion surrounding the term “survivor” in suicide literature & research, whether it should be used for people who have survived a suicide attempt or for people who have been bereaved by the suicide of a loved one. She contends the real difficulty for suicide survivors (those who have attempted) is that their risk may be heightened simply because they do not know under what name to search for help.
