I got a great deal from the day and in fact because it gave me more confidence with talking to those affected by suicide it has opened doors to conversations with people who have or are having suicidal thoughts. I think it’s that confidence they sense that allows people to open up and talk about their thoughts where before they couldn’t. I found the day to be engaging and interactive especially because such a wide range of professionals attended and indeed people who have directly lost loved ones through suicide. It is certainly helping me greatly with suicide Bereavement within my profession as a Funeral Celebrant. Funeral directors are always a bit weary of getting the funeral right as the bereavement is complex and needs specialist training to help the bereaved through what is an unimaginable time of their lives. Wonderful work and essential for anyone working in and around those touched by suicide.
