Signposting to further Support Services
We are not a crisis service and do not work directly with people experiencing mental health crisis. We will always signpost those who are in mental health crisis on to the NHS Mental Health Teams and Suicide Crisis in Cheltenham. Click HERE for contact information in a mental health crisis.
We accept referrals from anyone who is currently living in Gloucestershire that has been bereaved by suspected suicide.
We know that the shock and devastation experienced after suspected suicide loss, clouds all thought processing and judgement. You may not fully take in or comprehend what is being said or done.
Our liaison officer will make contact with those bereaved, to determine what support they may wish to receive. We can provide email, telephone or face to face practical support offering guidance and help. We will let them know that they are not alone. We also act as a signposting service to help those bereaved to find further professional support and guidance.
We also provide training in suicide intervention and awareness. ASIST and safeTALK are both accredited through Livingworks.
