“When a person attempts suicide the world often falls in around their partners and families. Surprisingly this book is the first scholarly attempt to let partners speak about how that traumatic event impacted them. The stories told here reveal an often life-altering maelstrom of relief, grief, disbelief, doubt, care, exhaustion, exasperation, worry, loneliness, ongoing fear and roller-coaster love that requires huge resilience to navigate. Yet there is hope and help as Dr. McGivern’s seminal work convincingly charts – opening up a neglected landscape for recognition and discussion.” – Dr. Mary McAleese, President of Ireland 1997-2011; Professor of Children, Law & Religion, University of Glasgow; Chancellor, Trinity College Dublin.

Health Insurance

We are very conscious of the financial implications that come with investing in psychotherapy support. If you have private health insurance you may be able to claim back some of the costs incurred, depending on your health plan. If you have private health insurance, contact your insurer to find out if and how much counselling psychology/ psychotherapy/ mental health they cover for you. Receipts for therapy sessions attended are available upon request for the purposes of tax returns/medical expenses.
