People Bereaved by Suicide

Help Is At Hand Information

Help Is At Hand

This guide has been written by people bereaved by suicide. It is not intended as something you need to read through from cover to cover. It has been designed to help you to choose when and what sections are most appropriate for you. Your family, friends or colleagues may also find it helpful to look through this guide so that they can begin to try and understand a little of what you are going through and how to find the right help.

Some sections focus on how you may be feeling; others on what may be happening. Throughout – and in more detail at the back – are some suggestions for sources of further support. There are also quotes from people who have been bereaved and who have experienced some of what you may be going through.

Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide


Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide exist to meet the needs and break the isolation experienced by those bereaved by suicide. We are a self-help organisation and we aim to provide a safe, confidential environment in which bereaved people can share their experiences and feelings, so giving and gaining support from each other. We also strive to improve public awareness and maintain contacts with many other statutory and voluntary organisations.

We offer a unique and distinct service for bereaved adults across the UK, run by the bereaved for the bereaved. We currently help around 7000 people each year and we continue to grow in response to significant unmet demand.
