Front cover of Support after a suicide

This practical guidance helps commissioners understand why and how they can deliver support after suicide (also known as postvention support) in their local areas.

It is designed to help commissioners, health and wellbeing boards, and others understand why postvention should be a part of local suicide prevention work and how others are delivering postvention support. It summarises what we know about how suicide affects individuals, families and communities, and their expressed needs for locally developed and delivered support.
