Compassionate support for people bereaved by suicide

Has someone you cared about ended their own life?
You are not alone.

NHS England has provided funding for a suicide bereavement service across West Yorkshire & Harrogate. The project is run by Leeds Mind and informed by the Leeds Suicide Bereavement Service. The workers have their own personal experience of suicide bereavement. You can access support as an individual or work place. We provide 1:1 support and peer support groups.

Whether you were affected by a suicide that was a few days, weeks or decades ago. We will support you whoever you have lost – this may be a parent, child, partner, sibling, other relative, friend or work colleague.

You can use the service if you believe someone you care about has ended their own life, even if this has not been officially recognised or you haven’t had an inquest. We also support people who feel affected by a suicide but do not identify as bereaved, for example if you witnessed a death.

To access support you must be a resident of West Yorkshire or Harrogate. People in Leeds can access the Leeds Suicide & Bereavement Service.

Been able to go to groups and talk about things, share experiences and relate to each other, to me it was a massive help.
Thank you for helping me cope
The support group is invaluable as they understand what we’re going through.
