  1. Has anyone ever had someone in their team kill themselves?

    Not in my team, but have known someone that did.

    It is hard not to feel guilty that maybe you should have seen the signs, that maybe you could have prevented it. I was lucky enough to have some therapy that taught me that once people get to that stage, their minds are not functioning correctly, and they truly believe that it is the best thing for everyone if they go ahead. They are also incredibly clever at hiding any sign of their intentions. I sincerely hope that you get some support in helping you to come to terms with what has happened.
     
  3. Thanks for your post, it has been a long hard week. I've done nothing today except catch up on sleep. Hopefully next week will feel a bit more normal.
