/ Let's Talk About Suicide / Health / Ep 08 – Understanding Guilt


In this episode, we talk about guilt, that feeling that you are responsible or to blame for the suicide in some way. That there was something that you did or didn’t do that caused the death.

Guilt is something that most people go through when grieving a suicide death and how it manifests itself can vary in lots of different ways. What is important to remember is that you are not alone in feeling this guilt and that it is normal, but most importantly, you are not responsible or to blame. Being kind to yourself and giving yourself time to come to terms with this is really important.
