Charity Tandem Skydive with Sunflowers Suicide Support
Introduction and background
Sunflowers Suicide Support was set up in 2018 in memory of Pete Morris who took his own life in September 2016 aged 29 years old. At the time of their loss by suicide, the Morris Family found a significant gap in provision both in terms of the mental health impact on themselves and others, as well as a lack of understanding from professionals to their specific needs and a lack of practical help and support particularly concerning the navigation of legal processes including the inquest. The family set up Sunflowers with the intention of bridging the gap in services which is person-centred.
Sunflowers Suicide Support provides a range of trauma-informed interventions to meet the holistic needs of children, young people and adults who are bereaved and affected by suicide. Sunflowers endeavour for service users to receive the best effective wrap-around care.
