Description:

StopSuicide value and care for each person who seeks our services. Through our experience of working with self- harm and suicide we acknowledge the very difficult life events that can lead people to hurt themselves, or end their lives. Our purpose is to provide a safe, confidential place where you can safely talk about the loss, stress, confusion, conflicts and other pain in your life. Our style of counselling is to listen, support and perhaps help you with insight to either change what is possible to change or to live more contentedly and creatively with that which is not. We will act to intervene with appropriate support, commitment and compassion.  STOP Suicide will continue to lobby for regular funding for similar voluntary groups. We greatly acknowledge all the groups, individuals, clubs, organisations and agencies that consistently fund raise for STOP Suicide. You people are our anchors and we appreciate you and your kindness.
