Service We Provide

Sinéad Raftery Suicide Bereavement Liaison Officer is based here in Vita House Family Centre & also works out of Boyle Family Life Centre. Sinéad can meet with you or your family at either centre or at a location that best suits you. You may have specific questions about some of the difficult practical issues following the death of your loved one, for example: the grieving process, how to speak to a child about what has happened, the role of the coroner, the inquest etc. You may want guidance or assistance in accessing a therapeutic service, or even just want to talk with somebody about what has happened.In some cases, there may be a specific concern about the reactions and emotions family members or the wider community are experiencing. In any case we welcome your call.
A Suicide Bereavement Support Pack specific to County Roscommon is also available through the Suicide Bereavement Liaison Officer. This service is funded by the HSE National Office for Suicide Prevention.

“Grief never ends. But it changes. It’s a passage, not a place to stay. Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor a lack of faith . It is the price of love”
