Death by Suicide is devastating and hard for all of us to understand. Feelings of guilt and shame can
complicate the loss. Join Brandon English, Director of Loss & Healing Programs for the American
Foundation for Suicide Prevention, and Anne Baker, Director of Adult Bereavement Services and Training at
Hospice Caring, Inc., for this workshop to learn how to support those who are grieving a death by suicide.

Learning Objectives:
