Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/15/2017 -- Suicide does more than just take a loved one. It leaves behind a stream of broken hearts and unanswered questions. When everyone is gone, who does the bereaved turn to?
Grief.com will be releasing books that target those left behind by their loved ones through suicide. These books are not only helping the bereaved understand what would lead to the action that resulted in their loss, but they also share sorties of those who have gone through the same trauma.
One of the books is by David Kessler, a renowned author of books about suicide such as The Needs of the Dying, which received praise from Mother Teresa. He has relied on his knowledge of loss and interaction with it to write his newest piece, Grief After Suicide: Understanding the Consequences and Caring for the Survivors (Series in Death, Dying, and Bereavement). "Never tell someone in grief to forget or move on. People experience grief in their own way and in their own time," Kessler advises, when helping others move on after a loss. Kessler focuses on wisdom shared by grief counselors, mental health professionals, grief clergy, and anyone who could be called upon to help the bereaved come to terms with their loss.
Other books in this series include Carla Fine's "No Time to Say Goodbye: Surviving The Suicide Of A Loved One," where the author tells her story of loss and encourages society to lift the taboo on the topic. She talks about not being able to say goodbye and her ability to move on without bearing the burden of responsibility in her mind.
The books focus on the fact that suicide is becoming ever more popular in the United States and the world, with at least 38,000 annual deaths credited to suicide in The US alone. These numbers only go to show that there is a problem that needs to be addressed.
Grief.com was launched to help bring together people suffering from loss and to help them find strength in community and sharing. The site carries several books on grief from different authors to provide mental and emotional strength to those coming to terms with loss and the grieving process. David Kessler is a contributing writer on the site.
