The Mental Health Commission of Canada completed an environmental scan of resources and programs targeted towards postvention after a suicide loss. Postvention refers to “suicide prevention activities that provide support for people affected by suicide (e.g., those bereaved in the aftermath of suicide loss). These activities are crucial in helping to support and heal those affected after the loss or experience of suicide, and in reducing the risk of further suicides/ future crises. Examples of these activities include follow-up education/prevention peer support, employee assistance programs, counselling, etc.”
