WAVES – A Bereaved by Suicide Programme

People often experience grief reactions
in “
waves” that come and go.

Waves is an 8 week grief education programme for adults 17+ who have been affected by the suicide of someone they know.

The group allows members to:

  • share their thoughts and feelings around what’s happened
  • discuss the nature of suicide and grief reactions
  • gain information and ideas about how to manage the hard times and care for themselves and others, including children, after a suicide
  • adjust to living with loss and moving forward.

The group of between 4 and 8 people is designed to assist towards recovery and adjustment in a safe non confronting group format facilitated by trained professionals over 8 weeks.

This program is confidential and free of charge.
