WEBINAR – The Impact of Suicidality on Family and Friends

A special event webinar with guest presenter Dr Lucinda Payne, Clinical Psychologist at McLean Hospital in Belmont, Massachusetts, USA

This webinar is for people who have experienced, witnessed or learned about their loved one’s suicide attempt and may have increased distress, grief, overwhelming worry or fear about their loved one’s safety, increased alertness or hypervigilance, and uncertainty about how to respond to their loved one’s behaviour. Family members often find themselves anticipating the next crisis, without a chance to recover or process the previous one.
A recent research study has indicated that these difficulties are related to trauma and stress responses. In fact, nearly half of family members who participated in the study met criteria for PTSD after experiencing a traumatic suicidal crisis. So it is clear, these families need additional support.
