Suicide Bereavement has been described as “grief with the volume turned up”, it’s effects on families, communities and society as a whole are devastating and tragic. 

Everyone impacted by suicide will have a unique experience and it is extremely important that timely and appropriate support is available. Our support is for anyone impacted by suicide within the county of Devon (see our North Somerset page for our support in that area) and is available for adults and children. We do not hold waiting lists so our support begins within 48 hours of you contacting us and it continues for as long as you need.
