There are over 700 suicides annually in Oregon, over 38,000 nationwide. It's estimated that for every suicide there are at least six suicide loss survivors - family members or friends of the people who died by suicide. And that's a very conservative estimate.
It's a wound that never heals for those left behind. Survivors often struggle with the reasons why the suicide occurred and whether they should have done something to prevent the suicide or help their loved one. Feelings of guilt typically ensue if the survivor believes their loved one’s suicide could have been prevented.
For Survivors of Suicide there's this website www.survivorsofsuicide.com
