How can someone navigate the complexities of grieving a loss to suicide?

Anonymous , 41

Is suicide normal? We were a normal family. If this is your outcome, does that mean it is now normal? When someone close to you, living in your household, decides to die there are so many questions that confuse the grieving. Why did you end like this? What was the root cause? If we live in society why do we feel so alone? Is human life truly priceless in this society that failed you? How could you have called for help but not found it? Why did I fail you?
