If you or someone you know is in danger of suicide, please seek help immediately. You should:

  • Call 999;
  • Call Lifeline on 0808 808 8000;
  • Use your local emergency department.

Don’t try to manage your or someone else’s suicidal thoughts on your own. Remember, thoughts about suicide are just that – thoughts. They won’t last forever and often they pass quickly. Many people who have had serious thoughts about suicide have said that they feel completely different only hours later.

Barnardo's Child Bereavement Service


028 9067 2399

The service offers individual work for children and young people up to the age of 18. The children are usually accompanied by a supportive adult and it is our experience that the majority of children and young people make significant progress within six sessions.

We also run group sessions for bereaved children and young people giving them the opportunity to meet with other people their age who have been bereaved.
