The loss of someone through suicide can have a huge ripple effect. This support group endeavours to meet the needs of individuals by providing emotional support to those effected by such a loss.

The aims of this group are:

  • To provide an opportunity for people bereaved by suicide to get support along with others who may have had a similar experience.
  • To understand the nature of grief and find ways of coming to terms with the loss of a loved one.
  • To help people maintain personal wellbeing.

Why a support group?

  • A support group can provide reassurance that people are not alone in their experience and an opportunity to talk with others who have had the same feelings.
  • This support group is facilitated by a trained Counsellor and is a confidential programme.
