Bereaved group to meet

A NEW support group for people who have lost someone who committed suicide is to meet in Galashiels.

The local Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide (SOBS), part of a national self-help organisation, offers emotional and practical support.

Group facilitator Gwen said: “Losing someone to suicide is devastating but the feelings and emotions combined with the stigma and taboo surrounding it all can leave someone feeling isolated and alone.

“Talking to others who have shared these experiences can help someone understand they are not alone.”

The group meets at Old Gala House, on Tuesday February 1 from 7.30-9pm. For further information ring Gwen on 07561319863
