Sign Up Online Support | Loss of a Loved One to Suicide

"I don't know how to talk about it."

When we lose someone to suicide, suddenly, we find ourselves without words that could help us understand what's happening inside us, and the thought of discussing it with others is stressful. I also cannot fully say that I know how to talk about it on the community level either, even though I have done many talks, presentations, and workshops around this topic, and I am a therapist who works with clients who are suicidal or who have lost someone to suicide. My heart goes out to people whose lives have changed when they lose someone to suicide.


Director of CandleX

In 2024, the month of World Suicide Prevention Day (10th Sep 2024), CandleX invites you to step into a space where we sit with the fact that we do not know how to talk about losing a loved one to suicide, and see where facing it might lead us.

What to expect:

A 120-minute online event that aims to provide a safe and supportive space for those who have lost loved ones to suicide. This isn't a typical psychoeducational workshop; it's a shared journey where we'll all participate and work together to discover more about this sensitive topic.

Who should attend?

Individuals and families who have lost a loved one to suicide.

Why should you attend?

The grief that accompanies such a loss is often complex and layered, making it difficult to navigate. When suicide is involved, the grieving process can become even more complicated, often leading to trauma- and stressor-related disorders (TSD) or other mental health challenges.

How should you prepare yourself for the event?

Facing the topic of suicide can be daunting, especially for those who have experienced the loss of a loved one. There may be hesitation, fear, and doubt in participation. The best way to prepare yourself is to take a leap of faith, and connect with others with similar experiences.

The following resources are available to help you continue with your healing journey:

We have been working on reducing stigma around suicide, and provide psychoeducation and psychosocial support since 2015. Please check out some of our articles below:

What are the principles of the event?

By coming together in this space, we can offer each other empathy, support, and understanding. We'll create a confidential and non-judgmental environment where you can share your stories, experiences, and perspectives. There's no pressure to talk, and everyone is encouraged to approach the topic with self-compassion and empathy.

Together, we'll work to navigate the complexities of grief and trauma after losing a loved one to suicide. We may not have all the answers, but by sharing our stories and experiences, we can gain valuable insights and perspectives that will help us move forward.

You will find details of group principles and event guidelines that need your consent in the yoopay registration link.
