Experiencing bereavement is difficult at any time, but when your loss is particularly sudden, unexpected or traumatic, including when the person may have taken their own life, it can be additionally difficult. There is a wealth of support available to you, and we have put together details of support services ranging from emotional support and peer support to practical advice and guidance.

This list is provided by NHS Dorset Healthcare University.
