Suicide support group

Midlands Support Group - For Family and Friends Affected by Suicide. Our confidential support group, recently established in conjunction with HOPE(D) welcomes people from all areas in Kildare.

We meet the first Wednesday of each month at the Aras Building (beside Fas) Main Street, Newbridge at 8pm. Our aim is to connect with people where members can share experiences, advice or just listen providing sympathetic understanding towards one another.

For people who have lost a loved one to suicide and would like to connect with others who have gone through the same experience please feel free to come along. Please do not hesitate to contact Jacinta on 087 2229695 should you require more information.
