BLG Mind to launch new Suicide Bereavement Support Service

BLG Mind is pleased to announce the launch of a new Suicide Bereavement Support Service in August 2021. The service will be funded by NHS England and developed in collaboration with SLaM NHS Trust Foundation, Bexley Mind and Mind Lambeth & Southwark.

The new service will be available to people across South East London, and will provide crucial emotional and practical support in the aftermath of suicide, a period when people can be hugely vulnerable.

We are currently in the process of building the team who will run the service, some of whom have lived experience of mental health and bereavement, enabling them to provide expert, person-centred care. The service will be available via both professional and self-referrals.

We are looking forward to working with other local Minds to launch and manage the new service.

More information will be available soon.
