I have been reading books on suicide since my partner died last year. Do not be put off by the cover of this book, its 106 pages are packed with practical advice in an easy to read format. It is written from a UK perspective, but everything will apply elsewhere apart from coroners and inquests. The chapters on the impact of suicide and where to find support are particularly good. It also has a specific chapter on youth suicide. It says most of what 'A Special Scar' (the recommended book I read on suicide) says but in far less pages and in plain english. A very useful guide for anyone affected by suicide or anyone wanting more information to understand the impact of suicide.

This book helped me over a really difficult time. It made me realise that I wasn't going through my grief all alone and that what I was experiencing was just normal. I recommend it to anyone who needs to have factual information about suicide as well as an insight into the emotional turmoil that suicide can bring.

I feel compelled to write a review for this accessible and well written book. I found it extremely useful in making sense of my overwhelming feelings of grief and disbelief when my son took his own life. My existence was becoming impossible and I'm so grateful to have found it at such a crucial time. The foreword to Coping with Suicide speaks for the integrity of the book. 'Written with a deep compassion and personal understanding of the anguish left behind after a suicide death, Maggie Helen comprehensively covers the trauma that follows a suicide bereavement and leads a structured and thorough approach through the pain and anguish of people left behind. Her book will be invaluable to all survivors of bereavement by suicide and to professionals in this field.' I wholeheartedly agree with this assessment and found the practical information both helpful and down to earth. I thoroughly recommend it to those who are still asking the question 'Why did they do it?'.

This is practical and step by step help for familes who have survived a suicide. Not too overwhelming but very helpful to clarify your thoughts and feelings either just after the event or later on.

This is just my opinion but to read whilst experiencing one of the hardest things i've ever had to deal with - that it's too late the person I loved is dead, was a deal breaker...Read more
