The Feelgood Factory offers group and individual one to one bereavement support. The support is delivered from a suitable venue within Sefton.
Bereavement may be one of the most difficult feelings we ever have to face. For many, cultural changes have resulted in death becoming a ‘taboo’ subject, no longer talked about, so when the inevitable happens we are often not equipped to deal with either our own or other people’s reaction.
The Bereavement support service was instigated as a result of a reported lack of easily accessible services for those who have experienced bereavement and have struggled with their experiences.
A bereavement group participant said: “I was stuck in denial and felt unable to move on. I felt unable to share my feelings with family and friends … Being in the group proved to be a safe place and I have been able to move on.
“There’s still a long way to go, but I do feel I’m better equipped to face the future”.
The Feelgood Factory is supporting the ‘30 Days of Sefton In Mind’ Campaign – to spread the word about local services and activities available to people in Sefton to improve their mental health.
