Resources for Parents & Caregivers

Children often take cues from others around them. The suicide support resources we have put together are here to support people who support children grieving after losing someone they love to suicide.

Children can revisit their grief at each developing milestone. We hope that these resources and suicide stories can help you not only now but at each milestone throughout the journey.
CYPRESS Tools

About these tools

The tools in this section may be able to help you or someone you know who is caring for and supporting a child or young person bereaved by suicide. We have included info sheets, links to other useful websites and lists of local WA services which we know can help.

If your child or teen is impacted by suicide, it is likely that you too are impacted.  One of the most helpful things you can do for your child is access your own counselling and support to process your feelings, thoughts and experience of this loss. When you do this, you will be better placed to support your child do the same.

If you don’t find what you need, please get in contact with us by email.

If you are an adult impacted by suicide and would like counselling support, reach out to Active Response Bereavement Outreach (ARBOR).
