|Abstract:||This study aimed to identify what suicidally bereaved persons', particularly close relatives' and loved ones', perceptions of their need for support were and their experiences of support directed at meeting those needs. A total of 166 persons who were bereaved by suicide completed a questionnaire consisting of both closed and open-ended questions. Overall, 94% of participants indicated a need for help to manage their grief, but only 44% received help. Most participants indicated a great or significant need for help. In addition, only 40% of those who received professional support felt satisfied with it. The authors concluded that there is a significant gap between need for support and the quality and provision of professional support services.|
