Handout Guides Helpers to More Help
“When Professional Help Is Needed” is a guide from SADOD for peer grief helpers when they encounter a bereaved person who might need more help than is available from a peer supporter. The handout concisely explains and describes key factors about suicide risk, debilitating grief, and post-traumatic stress disorder, three serious issues that often require clinical support. The discussion about each issue includes links to authoritative sources of further information and guidance. A brief presentation explaining the handout, by Franklin Cook of SADOD, is available on video. Find more information on SADOD’s “For Peer Grief Helpers” webpage.
