The service offers support to all individuals affected by suicide: individuals who are currently suicidal or who have recently attempted suicide and those bereaved by suicide.
Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide exist to meet the needs and break the isolation experienced by those bereaved by suicide.
Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide offer self-help support groups across the UK, where you can meet with other people who have been bereaved by suicide. They provide an opportunity to listen, to share, to ask questions and to connect with others.
Groups are led by a small team of volunteers, most have been bereaved by suicide themselves. They typically meet once a month and last for around 2 hours. There is no set structure to the session – people are free to talk and listen as they wish. Many groups also offer a small resource library and can share information about local sources of support.
