Talking about Suicide

play button.gif

How do we talk about suicide? For those who have experienced a suicide loss of a friend or family member it can be difficult to find a support network to talk about what happened. Tanetta Andersson, a Ph.D. student at Case Western Reserve University's Department of Sociology, talks about her research on disenfranchised grief and the way her community service has expanded to social justice work.

Really interesting I'm writing a piece for my psycology course i'm studying at the moment and one the most important things for dealing with grief is being able to talk about it. Sucide is especially is a really hard topic to tackle especially if it involves a loved one or friend

Suicide is something that each family tries to avoid talking about , but it can lead to complication so I guess it's very important to understand importance of communication in this case
