”Viktigast är att det finns ett skyddsnät” - Önskat efterlevandestöd till anhöriga som förlorat en närstående i suicid.
Suicide is a vast social problem that reaps thousands of victims each year. Beside these victims stand several people stricken with grief. In the following qualitative study, three people bereaved by suicide have been interviewed alongside three professionals working in state subsided occupations to determine what interventions they request. The study takes place within a small municipality in Sweden which lack public funded interventions for people bereaved by suicide. Results show that both bereaved and professionals want the municipality and the regional healthcare system to provide support and intervention. Requested interventions were emotional support, practical services, information, outreach and enhanced knowledge and cooperation among the professionals within the municipality. Further quantitative research should take place in order to generalise the result to a large population. Moreover, further research should assess the efficiency of wanted interventions.
