Dealing with the suicide of a loved one can be one of the most difficult things to cope with. Suicide has only increased over the years, and can affect the lives of anyone. Here are some things to keep in mind to help those dealing with the tragedy of a suicide, or if you yourself have experienced the suicide of a loved one.

Keep in touch. Reach out to loved ones, friends and spiritual leaders for comfort, understanding and healing. Surround yourself with people who are willing to listen when you need to talk, as well as those who'll simply offer a shoulder to lean on when you'd rather be silent.

Grieve in your own way. Do what's right for you, not necessarily someone else. There is no single "right" way to grieve. If you find it too painful to visit your loved one's gravesite or share the details of your loved one's death, wait until you're ready.

Be prepared for painful reminders. Anniversaries, holidays and other special occasions can be painful reminders of your loved one's suicide. Don't chide yourself for being sad or mournful. Instead, consider changing or suspending family traditions that are too painful to continue.

Don't rush yourself. Losing someone to suicide is a tremendous blow, and healing must occur at its own pace. Don't be hurried by anyone else's expectations that it's been "long enough."

Expect setbacks. Some days will be better than others, even years after the suicide — and that's OK. Healing doesn't often happen in a straight line.

Consider a support group for families affected by suicide. Sharing your story with others who are experiencing the same type of grief might help you find a sense of purpose or strength. However, if you find going to these groups keeps you ruminating on your loved one's death, seek out other methods of support.

  1. They are here to help! When speaking with different Victim Advocate Programs in Bonneville, Bannock, and Twin Falls Counties, they all emphasized they wanted people to know that they are not alone in whatever struggles they are dealing with. Their programs are designed to help those in need.
  2. They cannot operate on their own. They really appreciate their, “Big Heroes” which are community donors, businesses, grantors, and volunteers.
  3. They help make it easier to report any kind of abuse. They are aware how scary it can be to report abuse, especially for a child. They work directly with law enforcement, and can be the bridge between the victim and police officers, to help make the victim feel more comfortable.
  4. If they are not the organization that can help directly, they will know someone who can. They want people to come to them when they feel they need to. If that particular program doesn’t specialize in that specific type of case, they can point you in the right direction to get you the help you need.

Most people don’t dream of growing up and owning a crime and trauma scene cleanup company. In fact, it’s a profession most people don’t ever even think about. So when people ask me what I do for a living and I tell them I own a company that specializes in crime and trauma scene cleanup, I usually get a blank stare followed by the question, “How did you get into that?” Well let me tell you.

Growing up with my dad as the County Coroner in Twin Falls, I was exposed to the world that unfortunate events can happen to anybody. I will never forget the first time my dad took me on a call with him, it was the first time I had ever seen a dead body. It was a suicide by hanging, so it wasn’t a scene that required a biohazard cleanup company, but to a young kid, a shocking scene nonetheless. I quickly realized that suicides and other related scenes happen more often than most people realize, even in quiet little Twin Falls, Idaho.

So how I got into this business. I had worked at the INL for about 2 1/2 years, focused on helping clean up the nuclear waste that had been buried out in the desert. I could never shake the feeling that I needed to be doing something more, where I had more passion, more fulfillment. Something that would allow me to help others who were in need. I came across Bio-One while searching for businesses that were for sale in my area. The idea intrigued me to say the least. My first phone call was to my dad, to ask him how companies like this worked, and if there was a need for it. He told me a story that I’ll never forget. He said a month or two prior he had a case of a young 15 year old kid had commit suicide using a firearm. The paramedics and police came and did everything they could do to try and save his life. Unfortunately, the young kid passed away on the way to the hospital. While his mom was away at the hospital, his younger sister who was still at home tried to clean up the mess to help her mom. It broke my heart to hear that story and I instantly knew this was what I wanted to do. I wanted to help those families who were having the worst day of their lives. I wanted to do everything I could do to help make those terrible days seem a little more bearable.

Many see my profession as someone who just cleans up crimes scenes and other situations most people don’t want to deal with. What they don’t see is the family who has had their world turned upside down can now start taking the first step towards recovery. I was able to help with that first step.

Hoarding is a disease that has been made more aware thanks to shows like “Hoarders”, and “Hoarding: Buried Alive” on TLC. But for those who suffer from hoarding, it is their reality and oftentimes they feel stuck. Here are a few tips to help people who suffer from hoarding tendencies:

  • Make immediate decisions about mail and newspapers. Go through mail and newspapers on the day you receive them and throw away unwanted materials immediately. Don’t leave anything to be decided on later.
  • Think twice about what you allow into your home. Wait a couple of days after seeing a new item before you buy it. And when you do purchase something new, discard another item you own to make room for it.
  • Set aside 15 minutes a day to declutter. Start small–with a table, perhaps, or a chair–rather than tackling the entire, overwhelming house at once. If you start to feel anxious, take a break and do some deep-breathing or relaxation exercises.
  • Dispose of anything you have not used in a year. That means old clothes, broken items, and craft projects you’ll never finish. Remind yourself that many items are easily replaceable if you need them later.
  • Follow the OHIO rule. Only Handle It Once. If you pick something up, make a decision then and there about it, and either put it where it belongs or discard it. Don’t fall into the trap of moving things from one pile to another, again and again.
  • Ask for help if you can’t do it on your own. If you feel these strategies are impossible to carry out and you cannot cope with the problem on your own, seek out a mental health professional.
