SAIF was delighted to welcome Sharon McDonnell of Suicide Bereavement UK to our recent Education Day.  During her presentation Sharon outlined the research she’s involved with, for which SAIF members’ views are sought:

National Suicide Bereavement Survey: An Opportunity to Participate

The University of Manchester in collaboration with the Support after Suicide Partnership (SASP) are conducting a national study of suicide bereavement. The research aims to gain insight into the impact of suicide on people’s lives. We would like to give as many people as possible the opportunity to share their experience of being bereaved or affected by suicide. This  survey is relevant to Funeral Directors who have the difficult role of dealing with issues around suicide, caring for the deceased and the bereaved families.  For more information and access to this anonymous online survey, please click this link.  Recruitment onto the study will take place between August 2017 and July 2018.
