An evening for those who have lost someone to suicide to come together to remember their loved ones, and support one another in a safe and understanding environment, has been organised to take place in Rainford, St Helens in September.
The event is being supported by Listening Ear’s Amparo service, which supports those who have been bereaved by suicide.
The evening will provide an opportunity for those with lived experience to share their personal account of the affects of suicide; poems, readings and a selection of songs to give space for some quiet reflection and remembrance. There will be a number of support services available on the evening for anyone requiring comfort or support.
