Suicide of an employee or close relative of an employee is something we all hope will never happen. Unfortunately it does. This is a recently published guide for Managers & Human Resource Specialists to assist them in handling such tragedies.
Postvention is psychological first aid, crisis intervention, and other support offered after a suicide to affected individuals or the workplace as a whole to alleviate possible negative effects of the event.
