Support for those bereaved by suicide.
Hope Walks is a free walking group for people who have been affected by the loss of someone close to them who may have died by suicide – this could be a family member, a partner or a friend.
Spending time outdoors in nature can benefit both your mental and physical wellbeing. Walking and talking can be a gentle way to help people connect and tackle the loneliness and isolation often felt by those who have been bereaved by suicide.
Hope Walks provide a safe space with opportunity to chat to others facing similar struggles.
There is no time limit to the bereavement and the loss does not have to have been recent.
We aim to help people as they adjust to their loss by providing peer support and the opportunity to ‘walk and talk’ in the natural environment.
Our walks are facilitated by Cornwall Mind staff and volunteers.
Our walks take place monthly at Trelissick Gardens near Truro, Lanhydrock near Bodmin, Helston and Newquay.
From April to September we offer Twlight Walks, a chance to join us in the early evening at Trelissick Gardens.
When? Hope walks usually run on Mondays and our Twlight Walks on Thursdays. Once you sign up, we can share our timetable.
It’s easy – just complete our Referral Form.
For crisis support: Urgent Help.
We also offer a Singing for Wellbeing group in Camborne for people bereaved by suicide.
