I have lost someone to suicide

"Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me through the grief after losing my son. Your kind support means the world to me; listening, caring and being there for me during tough times."

Our service is provided by professionals who have personal experience with suicide, offering a safe environment in which to discuss your bereavement. We can’t take away pain, anger or sorrow. However, we can share our own experiences of losing a loved one to suicide. This can be done at a time and via a method you feel most comfortable with. We can offer telephone, email and outreach appointments either at home, at our office or at a mutually convenient venue for the persons affected.

Get in touch or make a referral. We are here to help you through the difficult times.

Alternatively, we have resources you can browse below.

We understand the loss of a loved one to suicide is like no other death. The physical and emotional impacts are devastating.
