Dorset Open Door
Dorset Open Door is a Wellbeing and Recovery partnership project, working closely with local and national bereavement charities and health and care organisations which has been designed to support people who are grieving to get the support they need.
Its purpose is to offer signposting for people in Dorset who are bereaved by trauma or suicide, to enable people to get the support that they need, at the right time, by the right people. This may be practical support, emotional support or counselling, courses, peers support or opportunities to commemorate or remember.
Experiencing bereavement is difficult at any time and for some people, it can be additionally traumatic during the COVID-19 pandemic.
If you have been bereaved by suicide, the grieving process can be even more complicated, distressing, uncertain and confusing.
Dorset Open Door, acknowledges that everyone has a different experience of bereavement. The team will listen to you and in the context of your personal experience, circumstance, strengths and resources help you to navigate support and advice that is right for you.
