Suicide Bereavement Support Groups 

We invite you to come along to our safe and caring groups.

Come and have a cup of tea /coffee and take the opportunity to: 

  • Providing hope and inspiration to those coping with the suicide of a loved one, bringing people together in a warm and caring environment.
    Talk with other people who have been bereaved by suicide.
  •  Share and speak freely. 
  •  Bring some understanding to individual experiences of grief.
  •  Bring forth expectations that we and others may have that are not helpful in our grief, and how to manage these.
  •  Acknowledge and share what is helpful.
  •  Remember your loved one and talk about ways you might like them to continue in your life.
  •  Talk about grieving in your own unique way.
  •  Share ways of managing traumatic responses.
  •  Talk about other things you’d like to that are relevant to losing your loved one to suicide.
