Danielle and Yves Bouchard gave advice about the process of grieving the loss of a loved one who committed suicide. They also shared their own experience of losing their 17-year-old son in January 2006.

Suicide is never an easy subject to talk about. It is especially difficult when the person who takes his/her own life is a family member or dear friend. Many people have no idea what to do, how to react or live with this reality.
