This service is currently available to anyone who needs it in these areas:
– County Galway
– Counties Limerick, Clare and North Tipperary
– Counties Sligo and Leitrim
The Suicide Bereavement Liaison Service can be reached on 1800 247 247. It provides practical support, information and signposting to anyone who has recently been bereaved by suicide by connecting or visiting with them promptly. Anyone affected by suicide is welcome to make contact with this service for support, or to learn about what services might be available to them in the area.
The Suicide Bereavement Liaison Officer can meet with bereaved individuals or families (at their request) as a group or individually.
Often those bereaved may have specific questions about some of the difficult practical issues following a death by suicide. They may want guidance or assistance in accessing a therapeutic service, or even just to talk with someone locally, about what has happened. In some cases, there may be a specific concern about the reactions and emotions family members or the wider community, are experiencing.
