Lost my son to suicide

We lost our 30 yr old son to suicide just 5 wks ago. We are all heart broken. I miss him so much. My son was Treatment Resistant Schizophrenic. Been under the care of our local Community Mental Health team for last 9 yrs. The system let him down.

Hello @Karenw12,

I’m so sorry to hear about the loss of your son. It sounds as though things are incredibly difficult at the moment and you are feeling totally heartbroken.

I’m glad that you’ve been able to share how you are feeling here and I hope that you find the community a good source of support. Everyone here has experienced the loss of a loved one and will understand some of what you are going through.

I’m sure someone will be along to offer their support, but I wanted to share a few resources with you that may help you right now.
