Supporting someone after a suicide attempt

Guidance and resources for anyone supporting a loved one following a suicide attempt.

Has a loved one attempted to take their own life?

The Hector’s House team can only imagine what a worrying, upsetting and distressful time this is for you. There are usually so many questions, so many ‘what ifs’ and a sense of hypervigilance that can really drain us of our own resources and energy.

You don’t have to shoulder this alone. Hector’s House have partnered up with Hertfordshire County Council to provide you with the support and guidance you need (and deserve) whilst going through this really tough time. 

Is their life at risk?

If you feel their life is at imminent risk, this is an emergency. Call 999 and asking for an ambulance or bring them directly to your nearest A&E department

Stay calm. You can do this. We believe in you.
