Walk Lighter is a new support group aimed to help those who have lost a loved one to suicide. The group has been set up by Ciara Duddy, a primary school teacher based in Paisley.
First walk: Saturday 5th February, Barshaw Park, 09:30 am
“On the 21st September 2021 my life as I knew it changed forever. I lost my dad to suicide.
Throughout the darkness I have been trying to find connections, a support group, a safe space to meet others who have also lost a loved one to suicide. I found phone numbers for helplines, zoom meetings and forums but no physical group. This led me to think of others who are trying to find the same support…so therefore I decided to create my own.
@walklighterglasgow will be an informal monthly support group meeting in Paisley. We can grab a coffee and walk with those who are experiencing the same confusion, heartache and fears.
Let’s walk lighter… together ”
