Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Suicide survivor bereavement support: Grant proposal
by Taninies, Angela M., M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2010, 55; 1493061
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant for The Gathering Place and develop a project to support Los Angeles area residences who have experienced the death of a significant person by suicide. The proposed project would provide suicide survivors with professionally led and specifically designed psycho-educational survivor bereavement groups, as well as, educate the boarder community about survivor bereavement. An extensive literature review was conducted to determine suicide survivor bereavement risk factors and beneficial interventions.

The California Endowment was selected as the project's funding source; however, submitting this grant was not a necessary thesis requirement. This project would promote the healthy healing of suicide survivors and strengthen the commonly weakened social support systems of this population. This will decrease the impact and occurrence of suicide survivor isolation, depression and other serious mental health risks, including suicidal ideation that is often associated with suicide survivor bereavement.
