If you have lost someone to suicide, the first thing you should know is that you are not alone. Each year approximately 3,000 people in Australia die by suicide - the devastated family and friends they leave behind are known as "survivors". There are many people in our community, like you, trying to cope with this heart-breaking loss.

For those dealing with the suicide of someone they know, it is important that they feel free to talk about their feelings openly and honestly, to find support to make sense of what has happened and learn how to live with their loss.

Suicide Bereavement Support Group

Whether the suicide was a recent experience or one that happened many years ago, the Suicide Bereavement Support Group can help.

The Support Group will assist you to break down the silence that locks away the guilt, shame, anger, intense pain and the "why?".

The group is a safe place to share your thoughts, ideas and feelings with others who understand the enormity of your loss. The Group meets weekly for 8 weeks and is a closed group.

The Group is structures so that those bereaved can share their experiences as well as being supported in managing and moving through their grief.
