You are not alone in your grief
While the support of your friends and family is invaluable, the best long-term support often comes from others who have experienced something similar and understand what it means. There are associations, religious communities and networks for survivors to which you can turn for help at times of crisis. Some can be reached around the clock, either by telephone or on social media.
