Encourage remembering After a suicide death, many teens will encounter social stigma. This can make them feel uncomfortable or unwilling to talk about the person who died. Teens benefit from remembering and talking about the person they lost, however. Encourage them to share memories, tell stories, ask questions, and establish rituals. Continue to provide opportunities for teens to share and remember in the weeks, months, and years ahead.

It’s important to recognize that the death is just one aspect of the teenager’s life; give them permission to take a break from grief and explore other parts of their lives. In addition, since many teens set unrealistic expectations for themselves, providing and encouraging healthy outlets can help reduce the amount of stress they may be experiencing.
