Kiri Pardoe- Suicide Bereavement Specialist Victim Support

Grief is a normal response to losing someone important to us. When someone dies by suicide, those bereaved often experience a very complicated form of grief caused by a combination of sudden shock, unanswered questions of ‘Why?’ and feelings of ‘What could I have done?’. ‘

Kiri will discuss how you can help someone who is at risk of suicide or support those who have lost someone by suicide. She will also try to explain the mental anguish someone contemplating suicide is going through.

Cathy Stevens- Victim Support Service Coordinator
