West Lothian Courier - - News -

The char­ity Neil’s Hugs Foun­da­tion of­fers help, un­der­stand­ing and sup­port to fam­i­lies and friends in West Loth­ian af­fected by sui­cide.

The ob­jec­tive of the char­ity is to as­sist peo­ple in West Loth­ian, sur­round­ing ar­eas and even­tu­ally all over Scot­land who are af­fected by the at­tempted or com­pleted sui­cide of a fam­ily mem­ber or friend.

Its aims are to sup­port fam­ily mem­bers or friends who are strug­gling to cope with the at­tempted or com­pleted sui­cide of some­one they care about; to raise aware­ness of the is­sue of sui­cide; to re­duce the stigma at­tached to sui­cide; to pro­vide a safe space to talk about love ones; to im­prove men­tal health of peo­ple af­fected by the loss of a loved one or friend and to re­duce sui­cide rates by sign post­ing peo­ple to or­gan­i­sa­tions which can help sup­port their loved one or friend.
