Suicide bereavement forum

18/11/2022 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm

Sbf Scaled

People bereaved by suicide carry a grief that is largely silent.

Beyond the experiences of profound grief, trauma, guild, shame and blame, people bereaved by suicide can also encounter stigma-related impacts that can make it difficult for them to seek help or for others to know what support to provide.

This forum combines research and lived experience to raise awareness around these impacts and suggests ways to effectively support people bereaved by suicide.

We encourage anybody who has been bereaved by suicide to attend as well as anyone who has or is currently supporting someone bereaved by suicide.

Recommended 18+ event.  Anyone 15+ is welcome to attend in the company of a trusted adult.

Register to attend on Eventbrite by visiting  suicidebereavement.evetnbrite.com.au



We acknowledge that attending a forum discussing suicide loss may bring up difficult and distressing emotions for people, especially those personally impacted by suicide.  Whilst support will be available through the day, we ask that you consider whether this is an appropriate time for you to attend a forum focused on understanding and responding to suicide loss.

If you are uncertain or wish to discuss further, please feel free to contact the presenters, Dr Colleen Carlon on (08) 9780 7658 or Jacquie Tarrant on 0429 229 400 or you can email suicideprevention.southwest@sjog.org.au for an information sheet.
