Suicide Grief Support

Losing someone to suicide can be a profoundly challenging and unique experience that requires understanding, compassion, and support.


At the Crisis Centre of BC, we are committed to creating a safe and caring community for those who have endured the pain of suicide loss. 

The Crisis Centre provides a range of programming and services for those who have been impacted by suicide loss with the aim of fostering connection, information and healing:

  • Support and resources for communities, organizations and individuals after a suicide.
  • Events and activities that foster healing and connection (ie. Cup of Tea for Soul series, International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day)
  • Training and Workshops
  • Volunteer opportunities for those who have lost someone to suicide to support our programming or join our Bereavement Advisory Committee

Our team is here if you seek resources to support yourself, someone you know, or your community. Contact us at

If you need emotional support right now or are having thoughts of suicide, please reach out to 9-8-8 National Suicide Crisis Helpline / Ligne d’aide en cas de crise de suicide, 310-6789 or 9-8-8

Individual Community Support

During the aftermath of a devastating loss to suicide, the impact can be deeply felt by many in the community – those who knew and loved the person. 

In the days and weeks following a suicide, the Crisis Centre can often provide support to help individuals, communities and organizations. Our resources can be made available in various settings, including schools, faith communities, and workplaces.

Suicide Bereavement Groups

A suicide grief support group, or bereavement group, can be a safe and compassionate space where individuals who have lost a loved one to suicide can share their experiences, emotions, and challenges. These groups can offer a specialized form of bereavement support designed to meet the unique needs of those grieving the loss of someone to suicide.

September 2024 – Take a Walk With Us

This two-hour drop-in gathering aims to bring people with similar life experiences together as we walk in nature and have time to share. This gathering hopes to be a space for those who, in their grief, feel more action-oriented. This event is offered by the CC in partnership with the Vancouver Hospice Society.

Our Impact The topic and word "suicide" is not so scary after taking a training from the Crisis Centre of BC. I'm grateful to have been here today, and am hopeful that I can help people in the future. safeTALK participant, Agassiz
