Summary:
When the filmmaker s mother committed suicide two weeks before her eighteenth birthday, she felt tremendous guilt and shame about the suicide. It was years before she could say out loud "My mother killed herself." She lived her life as if nothing had happened. But when she tried to commit suicide herself, she realized something was very wrong. She had to start acknowledging the feelings that she had repressed for years. She found that when she spoke about her mother s death by suicide, people did not want to hear about it. Some, however, told her they had friends or co-workers who were survivors, but that they didn t know how to discuss the subject with them. Many survivors do not talk about the suicide with anyone, even years after the event. By not talking about it, survivors have not been able to go through the normal healing process. After A Suicide provides support and identification for the many survivors of suicide. It will enable counselors to understand the feelings of those left behind and help them deal with their loss.
