The Kaleidoscope Plus Group provides Suicide Bereavement Support Services for people who reside in Warwickshire and across the Black Country. The service provides a safe space for people who have been bereaved by suicide to come together and talk openly about their experience. The groups are facilitated by trained professionals who bring with them the skills and knowledge around coping with grief, loss and bereavement.
It may feel daunting to walk into a room and join other people, but you will be supported from the onset to ensure you feel accepted and be able to talk freely and openly or simply just listen to the experience of others.
There will also be the opportunity to attend structured workshops to help identify and manage different emotions that you may experience and the impact of those, for example, anxiety, depression and problems with sleep. Where are the groups and when do the groups take place?
Groups are usually held on a monthly basis however due to recent events in light of Coronavirus all face to face groups have been temporarily postponed.
We are currently working behind the scenes to arrange online meetings and information will be posted soon about how to access this.
We are still able to offer help and support by telephone and if you would like to speak with someone please call 0121 565 5605 and ask for Melanie Griffin or Claire Dale
Please note that due to social distancing restrictions surrounding COVID-19, our Suicide Bereavement Support Service will not be taking place face-to-face. However, we’re still here to help.
In these challenging times, where face to face groups are not possible, we have decided to set up a Facebook page, which will allow people who we currently support and others to access the vital support that they need.
A death due to suicide can leave those grieving with so many emotions, some of which are hard to accept or understand. Our group will be a safe place where you can feel supported and understood and our experienced, caring staff can help you on your road to recovery.
