Suicide support group

A support group for people who have lost loved ones to suicide will meet in Bathurst early next month. Dr Suzanne Alder, a psychologist working with Busby Medical Practice will be hosting the support group. The Bathurst Suicide Support Group will meet in The Cottage at 202 Howick Street opposite the practice from noon this Thursday, September 2.

The group will be run by participants not professionals, however Dr Alder will always be nearby if anyone needs to speak with her. Initially she will guide participants through their first group experiences and start the discussion. Dr Alder said suicide is a very real problem in Bathurst and the surrounding region.
