Gloucestershire Support After Suicide Service (GSASS)

GSASS is linked with the Rethink Mental Illness charity and provides a range of support to those affected by bereavement by suicide.

They provide support for people aged 18+ who live in Gloucestershire and have been bereaved by suicide. This includes family, partners, friends, colleagues, health & social care professionals and those who may have witnessed the death. If they receive a referral or enquiry for support for someone under the age of 18, they are able to direct to alternative sources of support.

Their core opening hours are Monday – Friday, 9am-5pm.  For those who require support during the evening as a result of day-time commitments, they provide support up to 8pm.

They also take referrals outside of office hours, 365 days a year between 5pm -10pm by
contacting the Gloucestershire Self Harm Helpline on freephone: 0808 801 0606
or text: 07537 410 022. They will pass your referral on, and GSASS will follow up with you the
next working day.
