The Network is a not-for-profit organisation helping people bereaved by suicide in the Hawkesbury, Blue Mountains and Penrith local government areas. Our six facilitated local support groups offer a safe space for people to meet and express their feelings within the bounds of confidentiality, compassion and support. They allow for recognition of the stigmas that surround suicide, as well as recognising its impacts on the many people affected, including family, friends, colleagues and the wider community. By offering these groups, we are making it easier for individuals to express their grief and connect with others going through a similar experience.
