Who are we?
Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide exists to meet the needs and break the isolation of those bereaved by the suicide of a close relative or friend.
We are a self-help organisation. Many of our volunteers have themselves been bereaved by suicide.
What do we offer?
We offer emotional and practical support in a number of ways…
- Confidential telephone helpline
- Support information
- Help by e-mail
- Group meetings (in a number of locations)
- One-day conferences
- Residential events
- Information relating to practical issues and problems
We aim to provide a safe, confidential environment in which bereaved people can share their experiences and feelings, so giving and gaining support from each other.
We also strive to improve public awareness and maintain contacts with many other statutory and voluntary organisations.
Suicide recognises no age, social, ethnic or cultural boundaries – neither do we. Our groups are open to any individual.
