Support After Suicide
LOSS (Local Outreach to Suicide Survivors) is an outreach programme to provide emotional support to survivors bereaved by the suicide death of a loved one. Emotional support is provided via telephone calls; counselling sessions and home visits may also be arranged.
Healing Bridge is a suicide bereavement support group for those who have lost a loved one to suicide. Members of Healing Bridge meet at SOS to share their experiences and talk about their feelings. They also receive comfort and understanding from others who have suffered a similar loss, and learn to cope with the grief.
