One in ten people who are bereaved by suicide go on to have suicidal feelings. The impact of suicide may be devastating.

It can cause intense feelings of grief for loved ones, communities and workplaces. The Suicide Bereavement Liaison Service aims to support individuals and families bereaved by suicide and link them to relevant services.

Our designated Suicide Bereavement Liaison Officer will receive referrals from any source as well as self-referrals to offer:

  • One-to-one support
  • Support during inquests or other related matters
  • Guidance on where to find bereavement support services or mental health services for more specialist support
  • Training to bereavement support organisations, GPs and Community Pharmacists to up-skill them to support those bereaved by suicide
  • Resources and support
