  1. There is a support group called SOBS, which is Survivors of berevement by Suicide. They meet once a month in Edinburgh and Kirkcaldy. I found it very helpful. Details can be found on their website. Please ask Paula if she would consider putting this up on her page as I have just finished listening to her chat on National prevention Suicide and feel a lot of people do not know that help on this topic is at hand. People that attend these meetings know what it is like to grief for a loved one through suicide and we can get support from others in this group. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

      Kind Regards,
