Content warning: This post talks about suicide.
September 10 is World Suicide Prevention Day, an awareness day that raises awareness of suicide and promotes action aimed at reducing the number of suicides and suicide attempts globally.
According to the Samaritans – every 90 minutes, someone in the UK or Ireland dies by suicide.
Many people bereaved by suicide find that they need more specific support than that provided for bereavement in general and can find it particularly valuable to make use of support groups that are especially designed for people bereaved by suicide.
We offer 2 groups to help.
🔹 Hope Walks helps people to meet others with a shared experience and provide each other with peer support and opportunities to walk and talk in a safe environment.
Our walks take place monthly at Trelissick Gardens (near Truro) and Lanhydrock (near Bodmin), Helston and Newquay.
🔹 Singing for Wellbeing is a singing group in Camborne, with opportunity to meet others who have shared a similar loss, benefit from peer support, and participate in an enjoyable activity which can improve your wellbeing. And you don’t have to be able to sing to join.
To sign up just complete a referral form.
