http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b05n2922/life-after-suicide (60 minutes) 

Available on BBC iPlayer until 16 April 2015.

It will give an understanding of the common reasons behind death by suicide, how to talk to children about it and support available to work through the grief.

"They (the children) might never get over it, but they can adjust, learn to live, and learn to live alongside what has happened."
