Abstract

The Lifekeeper Memory Quilt Project, implemented by the Salvation Army (Suicide Prevention-Bereavement Support Services) in Australia in 2008, aimed to provide support for those bereaved by suicide and to create greater public awareness of suicide. To evaluate participants' satisfaction with this project, 82 bereaved individuals completed surveys and 30 completed an interview.

RESULTS indicated that the Quilt was helpful in assisting participants in their bereavement. The Quilt project gave participants an opportunity to reflect on the life of their loved one and provided a space for them to grieve without fear of negative social reactions.
