Wrap-around Support

At Yellow Brick Road we understand that losing someone to suicide can be extremely traumatic. Our fieldworkers have had the experience of loss through suicide and this enables us to help navigate the complex journey that families find themselves in. We provide a safe and confidential service which is free to all.

 Waves Group Education Programme

Waves is an eight week group programme for adults, designed to support people who have lost a loved one to suicide. This is a research and evidence based programme designed by Skylight for the New Zealand context. Yellow Brick Road have highly skilled facilitators, who have a broad range of experience. We believe the group process provides healing support and promotes a healthier grief process.
