“My son was facing depression and he decided to end his life. He texted me in the afternoon, I was out, the words he said is ‘mum I am ending my life, I am so sorry, I am just so sorry’. I felt that I needed something for myself and my daughter and that is where Grief Encounter stepped in. My daughter made friends with other grief children and they understand what she’s actually going through.”
