Suicide and suicidal behaviour is a family affair, in that it affects everyone in the family, irrespective of age.

An event that will allow families to come together with other families, who have shared the same experiences and trauma, offering peer support and hope for the future.
Our event offers free children's activities suitable for young adults and young children and free refreshments and a Tea & Talk tent. Free buses are available to and from Strathclyde Park by Blameless Charity.
Our vision for #LWAS 2017 is to raise the awareness; to as many people as possible; the scale and impact of failed and completed suicides on Families, Friends and Communities. Additionally to raise awareness of the potential triggers for suicidal behaviour; and signpost the local support available - providing information and choices for all.
