Offers support for anyone over the age 18 who has been bereaved or affected by suicide.

The Anchor Project Group is an 8 week structured support group that provides an opportunity for individuals to speak openly and honestly about their feelings without fear of being judged or told to move on with their life.

A safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment where people can connect with others who have had similar experiences, which in turn helps to reduce isolation.


Meet the Team


Rebecca Ali - Suicide Bereavement Facilitator

I run the South and East Norfolk Anchor groups, our bereavement support groups for those affected by suicide.

The best thing about working at an organisation like Norfolk and Waveney Mind is being surrounded by people who are truly dedicated to, and passionate about, improving mental health support.

I feel proud of being a part of a project that helps to facilitate a conversation around suicide, and in doing so, helps to break down the stigma and isolation that can be associated with it.


Louise Gawne - Suicide Bereavement Facilitator

Working for an organisation which puts mental health and wellbeing at the forefront of practice is invaluable. I feel nurtured and supported as an individual as well as truly valued as part of a wider team.

I work as part of a genuinely caring and supportive team which aims to create a therapeutic, non-judgemental space for people bereaved by suicide. I am very passionate about the work that I do within the Anchor Project. I find helping people to make connections to support each other is extremely rewarding.


Agi Huszcza - Complex Bereavement Service Manager

The best thing about working at an organisation like MIND is the wonderful and dedicated people with whom I work. As a mental health charity we are able to listen and respond to the need of the community when it comes to setting up new support services.

Speaking openly and candidly about the importance of mental health and making sure that no one is going through mental health struggles on their own.
