A MONTHLY support group for those who have lost a friend or lost one through suicide is being held on the second Wednesday of each month in Larne Elim Church from 6pm-8pm.

As a bereavement support facilitator, Gillian Leetch-Armstrong will hold workshops aimed at bringing together people bereaved through suicide in an environment of mutual support and understanding.

The self-help group provides an opportunity to meet and talk with others who have experienced a similar loss, and a holistic approach is taken. Each month will reflect on issues pertinent to grief through suicide.

The group has an open door policy and is non-denominational, inviting anyone over the age of 18 who has been affected by suicide to attend.
