Hi there! Tom here from the suicide bereavement team working across Derbyshire. You might have heard that we have recently extended our support service to the beautiful Derbyshire county. If you haven’t, a warm hello to you! Our suicide bereavement pathway is now supporting anyone bereaved and affected by suicide in Derby and Derbyshire.
Setting up a new service has been equal parts challenging and exciting…
When we were furnishing our office we got to the stage where we had the desks, the computers, the chairs and the cushions and it started to feel like a proper therapeutic setting. A place where you can come in, sit down with a warm cup of tea and feel safe and comfortable. Welcoming and cosy, professional but relaxed. We still have a way to go (having a welcoming base is essential, yet only the start), and right now we have lots of wall space, mostly bare.
That was when my colleague Lisa came up with the idea of having photos of our local and best landmarks, views and fantastic places that we’re all so used to we might forget how beautiful they are. So we picked a few of our favourites, where we like to go and recharge our minds and bodies after a busy week. Have a look below! Now what we would really love is to have some pictures taken by you of your favourite places in the area – are you up to the challenge? Contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org. And if you have some old photo frames that you don’t need any more and we could have, we also need those! Help us in providing this vital and so much needed support, be part of change.
Tom, Lisa & Ana
