The Waikato District Health Board recognises that anyone who was close to a person who has died as a result of suicide, will experience severe distress. Whilst the grieving process has a natural progression, often people need extra help to cope with this type of trauma through counselling or a bereavement support group.
The Waikato District Health Board has limited funding available for counselling or psychological services.
These services are available for immedicate family members who are bereaved as a result of suicide and who are not eligible to access this support through the established Primary Mental Health Service offered by general practitioners (GP).
Please complete the referral form and fax it to the Waikato DHB Suicide Prevention and Postvention (SPP) coordinator at (07) 858 0954
If you would like contact details for any upcoming support groups, please email the Waiakto DHB Suicide Prevention and Postvention Coordinator at
