Guidelines for Team Development
Suicide postvention is the suggested course of action individuals and groups can take after the tragic loss of someone to suicide. Postvention can include individual and group support, peer support and professional counseling. Early studies demonstrate that postventions help with the grieving process and decrease the incidence of complicated grief, suicidal ideation and poor adjustment to the loss. In a sense, postvention is secondary or tertiary prevention.
