Over 6000 people take their own lives in the UK each year. There is a clear need to help those with thoughts of suicide to stay alive.
At KPG, we provide Suicide Bereavement Support Services for people who reside in Warwickshire and across the Black Country. The service offers a safe space for people who have been bereaved by suicide to come together and talk openly about their experience. The group sessions are facilitated by trained professionals who bring with them the skills and knowledge around coping with grief, loss and bereavement.
It may feel daunting to walk into a room and join other people, but you will be supported from the onset to ensure you feel accepted and be able to talk freely and openly or simply just listen to the experience of others.
There will also be the opportunity to attend structured workshops to help identify and manage different emotions that you may experience and the impact they might have on you, for example, anxiety, depression and problems with sleep.
Groups are usually held on a monthly basis, however due to the Covid-19 pandemic, all face-to-face groups have been temporarily postponed.
We are still able to offer help and support by telephone. If you would like to speak with someone please call 0121 565 5605 / 07970 040016 and ask for Melanie Griffin.
