Thank you for your comment. Our understanding of postvention as a key step is relatively new in the field of suicide prevention, and stems from work conducted by the Military Suicide Research Consortium. However, it's been a long standing part of other areas that deal with tragedy, including how military and civilian agencies inform families that their loved one lost their life in combat (military) or a catastrophic accident (police). We're just now at a stage where those models are being adapted to cases of suicide. The Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors is a good example of how that work is being done.
