Suicide Bereavement support

Our mission & vision is to support adults who have been bereaved by suicide by reducing isolation and stigma and promoting resilience and healing.

 

Plant a flower in your loved ones’ name and make them part of our memory meadow.
Each flower planted enables us to maintain and grow our suicide support groups and services for those bereaved by suicide. Our work is an important part of suicide prevention and postvention, i.e. the support and services after a death by suicide.

Suicide Bereavement 
Support Groups since 2017 

Each year in Ireland around 500 people (C.S.O. 2020) 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, in 2017, the first HUGG group was setup. The demand for new groups grew, so after discussion and research HUGG was established in 10 February 2018, Milly’s birthday.

Coming to accept that loss is permanent, is perhaps one of the most difficult things to do. You will never ‘get over’ the death of your loved one. But, with support and understanding you will find hope and learn to live with your grief.
