Pete's Dragons provide a bespoke service to anyone in Devon who has been affected by suicide loss. Suicide bereavement has been described as "grief with the volume turned up", its effects on families, communities and society as a whole are devastating and tragic.
Everyone affected by suicide will have a unique experience through the grieving process and it is extremely important that timely and appropriate support is available.
The dragon team are now specialists in the field of postvention/suicide bereavement and suicide prevention. As well as supporting those impacted by suicide, the charity offers an extensive range of training.
