Existential challenge for the bereaved and uncertainty for the social environment

Reading and Talk with Grief Counselor Freya von Stülpnagel

Suicide often comes suddenly and abruptly into the lives of the bereaved. Even if a mental illness had been present for a long time, the relatives still had the hope that there must be a remedy, a therapy that could help or even cure the affected person. Often, however, the suicide seems to occur abruptly and suddenly, so that the force of this fateful blow shakes the relatives to the core with brutal harshness. The whole life seems to plunge into an abyss. Sensitive and empathic support would be necessary here, but the social environment is helpless and does not know in what way it could be helpful for the bereaved. Helplessness everywhere. However, if we familiarize ourselves with the causes of suicide, the grief of the bereaved and the possibilities of support, we can use this traumatic time for those affected in a meaningful way for all of us.


Freya v. Stülpnagel was a lawyer. After the suicide of her son, she trained as a grief counselor.
