Suicide postvention for mental health professionals

One in five psychologists and counsellors and one in two psychiatrists can expect to lose a youth or adult client to suicide in the course of their careers. Postvention is an intervention to attend to the needs of the three groups that require assistance after the suicide of a client: the family, other patients acquainted with the deceased and clinical and administrative staff.
