This article focuses on the effects that a student loss to suicide has on school counselors. It is unfortunate that this profession places counselors at a high risk for experiencing the loss of a student to suicide as they work closely with at-risk students on a daily basis. In this study, a qualitative narrative method was used to explore the personal and professional impact resulting from the suicidal experience. Recommendations are made to help school counselors cope with such an overwhelming tragedy.
