Helpful Information for Families After a Suicide


This practical handbook is dedicated to Nunavummiut who have survived the passing of another person through suicide and is dedicated to the memory of those who have passed through suicide. If you are reading this handbook, it is because you have been impacted by suicide directly or indirectly. You are appreciated for taking the time to read this handbook.

Embrace Life Council thanks Klinic Community Health Centre and the “After a Suicide” Handbook Advisory Committee for allowing the adaptation of “After a Suicide” model to reflect the needs of the Territory of Nunavut and Nunavummiut.
