Suicide Bereavement Support Program
An 8-week support group for those bereaved by suicide
While some suicides can be prevented, tragically, suicides do still occur despite our best efforts. It is important that people feel free to talk about their reactions to suicide openly and honestly and that those affected by suicide reach out to others for support and help.
Lifeline Harbour to Hawkesbury runs two different groups for those bereaved by suicide:
An 8-week structured support program particularly suited to those (over 18) recently bereaved by suicide. For this group, pre-registration is essential.
There is also a monthly ‘open’ group (i.e. just turn up, no pre-booking required), which takes place on the first Thursday of each month in Gordon.
Further details of these groups below. Both groups provide a safe and comfortable environment in which you can discuss feelings and experiences associated with your loss.Venue: Lifeline Harbour to Hawkesbury Centre, 4 Park Avenue, Gordon.

Although a person dies, relationships are forever
“The sharing process was critical and it showed me I was not alone.”
“I felt secure in the company of others who were grieving as a result of suicide. I felt like I belonged and that was very comforting for me.”
“Bravo to the facilitators….their gentleness and calmness is infectious, not forgetting how very respectful they are towards members of the group.”
