Interested parties in other communities have received training related to the active postvention model and
each week others wanting to start a LOSS team in their communities contact Dr.

I would like to invite you to participate in a research project on suicide bereavement. I understand
that suicide bereavement is a difficult process and hope that this project will shed light on what is most
helpful to survivors in coping with their loss. The study will involve taking an online survey available
at this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/SuicideBereavement. There, you will find more details of the project, the survey,
contact information for the researcher (Dr. Regina T. P. Aguirre), and will be asked if you would like to participate.
I appreciate your time and consideration.

Dr. Edwin Shneidman’s concept of “postvention as prevention” has governed Dr. Frank Campbell’s
work with suicide survivors since 1986. Dr. Campbell envisioned a “LOSS Team”, a team of trained survivors
who would go to the scenes of suicides to disseminate information about resources and be the installation of hope
for the newly bereaved. Read more about LOSS Team here.
