New episodes are uploaded on the last day of every month.

If you want to find a podcast on a specific topic (e.g. what it’s like to go to a support group) or search for a loss similar to yours (a sibling, parent, child, friend etc.) then click on the relevant category tag on the left hand menu. More tags will be added with each episode.

I want to contribute to the next episode

In episode 6 our guest will be a Christian minister called Andrew. Together we explore what Christianity says about suicide. There are many negative messages being taught which cause distress to suicide loss survivors. However he preaches that people who have died this way are welcomed in heaven with open arms.

We also talk about grief in general, what comfort bereaved people can find through Christianity, and the good and bad poems people send to those who’ve lost a loved one!

Please get in touch if you have any thoughts on Christianity & suicide that you want to share. Or you can share your experiences about any topic, recommend a resource, send me some news – anything you like! The deadline for recording is 20th June. I look forward to hearing from you.

    • Dear Lyn, I’m so sorry to hear about the loss of your daughter. I think connecting with others who went through the same kind of bereavement can be very helpful. The grief can be so different depending on who has died and what their relationship is to you. There are lots of closed groups on Facebook that you could join. Just search for terms like ‘survivor of suicide loss’, ‘suicide bereavement’, or ‘losing a child to suicide’.

      Another option is this online forum: https://losingachildtosuicide.org.uk/new-support-forum/

      I haven’t yet managed to find anyone who has lost a daughter to feature on the podcast but I am still looking so I can try to help people like you.

      With best wishes x

  1. Thanks Lizzie and well done. My main thought when my grandson of 16yrs committed suicide was that surely something good had to come out of it, so we all need to focus on the positive and look forward, not backward, which doesn’t mean that we forget them.

    • Dear Glenys, Thank you for your kind words. I’m sorry to hear about your grandson. I agree that looking to the future doesn’t in any way mean that we forget our loved ones! I think a lot of people who have been left behind feel determined that something good has to come from it – and that helps them find meaning and move forward. I think that’s why so many people go on to do things like start a charity, fundraise, write a book, campaign, become closer with their remaining family. etc. etc. with best wishes, x
