Leeds City Council has provided funding for a suicide bereavement service in Leeds. The project is run by Leeds Mind and Leeds Survivor Led Crisis Service. The workers have their own personal experience of suicide bereavement.
You can access support as an individual, family or work place. They provide 1:1, peer groups, family support and counselling. Whether you were affected by a suicide that was a few days, weeks or decades ago. They 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. Also support people who feel affected by a suicide but do not identify as bereaved, for example if you witnessed a death.
