Are you struggling with the overwhelming grief and isolation of losing someone to suicide? Peer support offers a powerful solution, connecting you with others who can relate to your pain while providing a safe space to share, heal and grow. 

Through peer support you can find validation, identify coping strategies and reduce feelings of shame and stigma. This can lead to improved emotional well-being, increased hope for the future and a sense of empowerment & community. Joining a peer support group can help you navigate the complex journey of suicide bereavement, finding hope and comfort through connection with others.

Grief Support Services are inviting people with lived experience of suicide bereavement to express interest in joining our Suicide Loss Service Peer Team. These volunteer peers provide one-on-one time supporting other people who have also been bereaved by suicide. The peers assist with emotional and practical support and full training is given. We welcome all adult applicants, with particular availability for male volunteers and people from Maori and Pasifika communities.
