Survivors of Suicide Support group

Survivors of Suicide Support group

Survivors of Suicide support Group, SOS was formed in September 2006 as a response to the rise in Suicide’s in the East Belfast Area. We at this time felt that in the East & South of the city and also the Castlereagh Area there was no one or place people could turn to for help. The group was set up by and is run by the family and friends of those who lost their lives to Suicide and it's aim is to provide help and comfort to those left behind, we try to provide a shoulder to lean on and an ear to listen and give if possible an honest answer to the many questions that are asked in the aftermath of a sudden death by suicide. We give families a safe place to talk about their loss when they are ready. We in the group are no different to anyone else who this has happened to but through our own experience we feel that we can help by relating our own stories from our own losses. Many family and friends have gotten a lot of help from the group and many of those with us now are getting in their own words “Something they could not get anywhere else” we in the S.O.S group also provide other services for the families and friends. We can put family members in touch with counsellors and complimentary therapists we can also provide the families and friends with information on all matters relating to the aftermath of this type of death. We can arrange training on matters relating to suicide and helping people to recognise the signs when a loved one is at risk of suicide.
