Question: What is the frequency and impact of loss by suicide on loss?

Strategy: The National Opinion Research Center’s (NORC) AmeriSpeak® online survey panel will be used to examine the prevalence of losing someone to suicide, relationships to the deceased, recency of the suicide, burden of bereavement and support-seeking behaviors.

Impact: National estimates of the prevalence and impact of suicide loss.
