Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide

Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide (SoBS) are the only organisation offering peer-to-peer support to all those over the age of 18, impacted by suicide loss in the UK. They help those bereaved by suicide to support each other, at the time of their loss and in the months and years that follow. They are a self-help organisation and we provide a safe, confidential environment in which bereaved people can share their experiences and feelings, so giving and gaining support from each other. They also strive to improve public awareness and maintain contacts with many other statutory and voluntary organisations.

SoBS offer peer led support groups, online virtual support groups, a national telephone helpline, online community forum and email support. They offer a unique and distinct service for bereaved adults across the UK, run by the bereaved for the bereaved. Suicide recognises no social, ethnic or cultural boundaries and neither do SoBS. Their helpline and groups are open to all survivors of bereavement by suicide aged 18 years and over.
