Volunteers needed for
Suicide Bereavement Study
If you are 18 years or older and have been impacted by the suicide of another person, please consider participating in our research study. You will be asked questions about yourself, the person you lost, personal attitudes about those in your social environment and help seeking, and how you manage difficult situations. Participation is entirely up to you. At any point in the survey, you can decide that you are no longer interested in participating.
It is our hope that your participation in this study will help us to better understand the experiences of survivors of suicide loss in general; as well as the ways in which personal factors, such as personality traits and attitudes, impacted your grief experience.
If you are willing to participate, log into
