Bereaved By Suicide Support Group had our last session for the year on the 6th December with an activity “Therapeutic Art”. This activity was very relaxing and chatting in an informal way about what we were feeling around this time of the year.

Some helpful tips for you in what can be a difficult time for many as it can evoke overwhelming feelings and memories. It can help to be prepared for these feelings, such as calling or arranging to be with a friend or family member, going for a walk, talking to someone who you trust, practicing a relaxation technique, or doing something that you think will be helpful to you at this time of the year. If you are not feeling comfortable going out or sometimes being around family, friends let them know as this will help them to understand.

From the BBSSG Team, we wish you a safe Festive Season and New Year ~ stay well and we will see you next year.
