Our Support Services

Support Groups

Many of our groups have reopened face to face and some are still offering virtual, online meetings to provide vital peer led support. Use the Find a support group tool to find your local group and contact them for further details or contact the national office who will provide details of a face to face or virtual support group that can help, regardless of geographical location.

Group facilitators from your local groups are continuing to respond to calls and emails and will answer any queries you may have.

National Helpline

This service is currently on hold and under review.

Email Support

Online Community Forum

Our online community forum offers peer-to-peer support for those impacted by suicide. It is accessible 24 hours a day and takes just a few minutes to apply.

Social Media

Our social media channels provide a sense of community and are updated regularly with physical and mental well-being resources, charity news, fundraisers and awareness events.



Many people find reading about the experiences of others helps them feel less alone and understand more about what they are experiencing. In our Resources for survivors section of this website, you will find a selection of resources about bereavement. It also features books, poetry & prose (written by survivors) and films and videos which many people find helpful and reassuring.
