Each year in Ireland around 400 people (C.S.O. 2018) take their own life – each suicide has a devastating and lasting impact on their families, friends and communities.
In January 2016, 11-year-old Milly Tuomey died by suicide. Devastated by her sudden death, Milly’s mother Fiona searched for a suicide support group in Dublin to help her with her grief but could not find one. So, after much discussion, research and support HUGG was established in February 2017.
Coming to accept that this loss is permanent, is perhaps one of the most difficult things to do. You will not ‘get over’ this loss. But, with support and understanding you can grow around your loss.
