/ Let's Talk About Suicide / Health / Ep 06 – Triggers


Triggers are a huge thing that people deal with when grieving a suicide death. Everybody we interviewed for this podcast talked about triggers, and you are probably hyper aware of them too. A noise, a specific location, a smell, something you see on TV, a season of the year, a passing remark from someone you don’t know; these and so many other things can be triggers that uncontrollably draw you back into your grief and that acute feeling of trauma. Planning for expected triggers and maybe limiting your exposure to them can be a helpful tactic. How triggers will impact you will change over time just like how your grief will change over time too.
