Suicide Bereavement Groups
Suicide is a time of immense crisis and the tragedy of suicide loss can create trauma – deeply affecting individuals, families and entire communities.
Lifeline Tasmania’s Suicide Bereavement Groups can help you with support, connection, and information following the loss of someone through suicide.
Participating in the Group provides anyone who has experienced the loss of someone through suicide the opportunity to share, listen and give mutual support. Through connecting with others who have gone through a similar experience, you will come to understand and deal with your wide range of emotions. It is important to give people time and space to grieve. Members of this Group have told us that in time, the rawness of their loss began to turn into memories of happier times with their loved ones.
Lifeline Tasmania’s Suicide Bereavement Groups are FREE service to those affected by the death of someone through suicide.
Who this service is for
Some people find it helpful to talk to others soon after the death, while others may not be ready to join a group for months or years.
Please contact us to discuss when might be the right time for you. It is important that you only attend when you feel comfortable.
The Group is recommended for adults and mature teenagers. If you have children please talk with us about age appropriate support services available that would benefit them most.
