The month of February brings Valentine’s Day to the calendar and with that day there are a lot of conflicted emotions. For people grieving a death from suicide there can be a missing card from that dear one who found life so painful. Valentine’s Day is all about love and strong feelings towards loved ones.

Loss and Learning
Wednesday, July 12, 2017 by Cynthia Waderlow MSE, LCSW
After a sudden loss like suicide, families are reeling. Parents may feel like they have lost energy and find that hopeless feelings, apathy or frustration are affecting their interactions with children and teens. Children, in response, may be furtive and watchful of your tears and despair at home, while looking for normalcy in school or with friends outside the home.
