This is a specialist service developed to support adults over the age of 18 years who have been bereaved by suicide. NHS Cornwall and Isles of Scilly has commissioned us to provide the service across the county.
We have trained professionals with expert knowledge, skills and experience in helping those who have been bereaved in this way.
The type of support they provide includes:
It is open to adults over the age of 18 years who have been affected by suicide. If you or someone you know would like to access this free service, call 01208 871 905. You can also get a referral from your GP or a health professional.
The service also runs 8-week bereavement by suicide courses and groups. If you would like more information on these, call 01208 871 905 to find out when the next course is likely to be delivered in your area.
"I cannot believe how much the Suicide Liaison Service has done for me since this tragedy happened. From almost immediate contact with the service, to the best therapist I have ever encountered, to the professionalism of all the support staff. I am very grateful."
