Department of Health guidance on coping with sudden death

The Department of Health has produced guidance entitled, 'Help is at Hand: A Resource for People Bereaved by Suicide and Other Sudden Traumatic Death'. This guide is aimed at the wide range of people who are affected by suicide or other sudden, traumatic death. It aims firstly to help people who are unexpectedly bereaved in this way. It also provides information for healthcare and other professionals who come into contact with bereaved people, to assist them in providing help and to suggest how they themselves may find support if they need it. The guidance also contains a specific section around deaths in state custody.
