Suicide survivor is a family member(s) or friend(s) who experiences the death of a loved one by suicide. Some existing literature shows the possible complications in them while some suggest on the management plans to address the reactions experienced by them. However, it is important to note here that added to the loss and grief, in suicide, there is an associated stigma that may dispose the person to fear, anger, self-blame, guilt, confusion, abandonment and may keep them away from the treatment procedures and reduce the process of ventilation and thwart the restoration of functioning. There may also be risk of suicide in the suicide survivors. The quantitative and qualitative difference in the experience of the emotional and cognitive experiences among suicide survivors require a specific plan for the intervention and more substantial research into this field.
