We help people living through the suicide of a loved one

 

Call us crazy, we'll admit, we're a little off our rocker with passion for making sure those that are experiencing suicide loss are supported. That's just what happens when you get a team of people that have experienced the aftermath first-hand working together towards making sure that those bereaved by suicide have access to timely and appropriate support.

We are honest, brave, vibrant and a little bit sweary... so we will come straight out and say it - losing someone to suicide is just so totally devastating and exhaustingly shit. We know, we've been there. We know that as families, partners and friends adapt to the world without their loved one, in the early days we might be initially able to help in a number of small yet meaningful ways, such as: practical advice, listening services, comforting hampers, financial assistance, holistic therapies, wellbeing workshops and family fun days. 

We also know that psychological and therapeutic support must be timely, appropriate and carried out by professionals and we work hard to ensure we have a range of quality therapists and specialists within our team.




We help people understand how they can contribute to preventing suicide

 

Our overarching aim at Pete’s Dragons is to put ourselves out of business, we don’t want to be supporting people after a suicide because we don’t want suicides to occur in the first place.

Our contribution to this aim is our highly skilled and experienced training and consultancy department which offers workshops and courses in all aspects of suicide postvention (bereavement), intervention and prevention as well as wellbeing and mental health maintenance.

As with our postvention support our training and consultancy offering is completely bespoke and can be tailored for individual/organisational need.
