We are a self help group that share our experiences in loss and grief to enable us to survive the tragic loss of members of our families who have taken their own lives. Having been there, we feel that we can help one another to go on with our lives while remaining true to the memory of our loved ones.
Who can Join
Generally to preserve confidentiality of those attending we accept only those who have lost someone through suicide, a father, mother son, daughter, friend, sibling, wife, husband, partner.
The facilitator is on call 24 hours for emergencies. For general enquiries please ring at a reasonable time.
