The purpose of this narrative project was to narrate the writer's experience of losing a loved one to suicide, with an emphasis on the psychosocial aspects before, during, and after the suicide. Relevant literature was reviewed about suicide bereavement, cultural implications of suicide, bereavement treatment, and psychosocial aspects of suicide bereavement. Personal narratives and scholarly narratives were also evaluated in the literature review. The narrator shares her experience as a suicide survivor, as well as the pain of her bereavement. The narrator's hope is that her narrative will educate people on the tenets of suicide and suicide bereavement, and will enable social workers to become aware of the clinical implications of suicide bereavement.
