Bereaved by Suicide Support Group

Lifeline Canberra, in partnership with the Canberra Grief Centre run a Bereaved by Suicide Support Group. This is a clinically supervised support group for members of our community bereaved by suicide.

The next group will commence on Tuesday 15th February 2022, with fortnightly meetings running 6pm-7:30pm over 12 weeks (final night Tuesday 26th April).

The program will accommodate adults over the age of 18 who are between three months and three years bereaved. Central to the program is the provision of a safe and validating environment to enable connections, normalising grief and healthy coping. The cost of the program is a one-off $30 donation to Lifeline Canberra.

We are encouraging community members bereaved by suicide who may be interested in joining to contact us for more information.

To register your interest please email Felicity.vosnakes@act.lifeline.org.au  Or phone; 02 6171 6313
