Survivors Of Bereavement By Suicide

Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide exist to meet the needs and break the isolation experienced by those bereaved by suicide.  We are a self-help organisation and we aim to provide a safe, confidential environment in which bereaved people can share their experiences and feelings, so giving and gaining support from each other. We also strive to improve public awareness and maintain contacts with many other statutory and voluntary organisations.

We offer a unique and distinct service for bereaved adults across the UK, run by the bereaved for the bereaved.  We currently help around 7000 people each year and we continue to grow in response to significant unmet demand.

Service Definitions

Services providing advice and information relating to all aspects of mental health.
An acute state of intense psychological sadness and suffering experienced after the tragic loss of a loved one.
When a person is feeling suicidal they can also feel very self-destructive. The meaning is as follows: Suicide (from Latin sui caedere, to kill oneself) is the act of intentionally ending one's own life; it is sometimes a noun for one who has committed, or attempted the act.
These are psychological treatments in which improvement in a person's symptoms or wellbeing is achieved by talking with a therapist or counsellor rather than, or as well as, taking medication.
