Every year about 600 suicide deaths and 11,000 suicide attempts are recorded in Denmark. Next to each suicidal act are numerous relatives and other next of kin who are deeply affected. Specialised support for bereaved and affected is being provided by volunteer organisations and it is unclear how many receive help. This research project will seek to map how many bereaved by suicide and affected by suicidal behaviour receive support from Nefos, one of the Danish volunteer organisations.
The project has received support from the Partnership for Suicide Prevention, Danish Health Authority
