I am caring for someone who is suicidal

At Roses in the Ocean…we acknowledge those of you who care for loved ones through suicidal crisis . . . we acknowledge the fear and helplessness you experience, and your endless endeavours to empower them to live.

We know that people with a lived experience of suicide bring insight, wisdom and perspective that is critical to informing the best approaches to reducing emotional distress and pain and saving lives. And that people who have cared for a loved one through suicidal crisis are acutely aware of fear, helplessness and conflicting emotions feels like – and what helped them help their loved one.

Roses in the Ocean has worked with members of our lived experience collective and industry colleagues to create the following resources for individuals who are caring for someone who is in crisis.

Alongside online resources such as fact sheets and information guides, Roses in the Ocean brings the voice of lived experience to suicide prevention activities by way of inspiring and informative interviews and podcasts with members of our lived experience collective.
