Welcome to CYPRESS, a place where you can access bereavement counselling and resources, and hear the stories of others who have journeyed through losing someone to suicide.
FOR CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE
Chances are you’re here because you’ve lost a loved one to suicide, maybe a parent, sibling, or a close friend. We’re glad you made it to our site. Grieving this type of loss is intensely difficult and can leave you feeling disconnected.
FOR PARENTS & CAREGIVERS
Looking after yourself following a suicide death is intensely hard, but offering children support after suicide at the same time can be even more confronting. What can you say? What should you tell them about the death?
Children and young people who have someone commit suicide are particularly vulnerable. They are more likely to experience depression, anxietyand social disconnectedness than others who haven’t experienced this type of trauma.
