Compassionate support for people bereaved by suicide

Has someone you cared about ended their own life?


You are not alone. Leeds City Council has provided funding for a suicide bereavement service in Leeds. The project is run by Leeds Mind and Leeds Survivor Led Crisis Service with support from Leeds Bereavement Forum. The workers have their own personal experience of suicide bereavement.


You can access individual support, group work support, or counselling through this service, whether your bereavement by suicide was a few days, weeks or decades ago. We will support you whoever you have lost – this may be a parent, child, partner, sibling, other relative, friend or work colleague.


You can use the service if someone you care about has ended their own life, even if this has not been officially recognised or you haven’t had an inquest.

How we can help:

  • A safe place to talk
  • Individual peer support
  • Group peer support
  • Advocacy
  • Practical guidance
  • Signposting
  • Memorial events
  • Awareness events
