How can I find a qualified mental health professional who understands the issues of suicide bereavement? Trust your feelings. Choose a therapist who makes you feel comfortable and understood. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Does the therapist have experience and training in grief and sudden loss, and in working with children or teens? Are they comfortable working with suicide loss survivors? What is their treatment philosophy, what are their methods? An informed grief counselor will recognize the individual needs of each person’s grief, and won’t try to fit a client’s grief process into a particular theory or force someone to share before they are ready.
