James Support Group

Support for ALL affected by suicide

Whether you are a mum, dad, husband, wife or partner, brother or sister, aunt or uncle, granny, grandad, friend or colleague we are here to help you.

This group was formed because we- the family and friends of James have struggled to find any meaningful help here in the Highlands- even though the Highlands has the highest suicide rate in the UK

James Mullery was just 28 years old when his issues got too much for him, and he decided there and then to take his own life. It’s hard to believe, but he left three children behind, 5 years, 2 years, and only 10 weeks old. He also left behind his partner and all of his family and friends – We have all been affected by him ending his own life and will continue to feel the effects for a long long time to come. We are all facing a life without James, who was a lovely man. He wasn’t perfect, none of us are, but we miss him and his wicked sense of humour. James was the life and soul of a night out, and great fun to have around.

We are not councellors, just a family stricken by grief who are prepared to help others in the same situation. We have taken it upon ourselves to attend various Training events & information sessions, and actively network with other groups & organisations for the common good.

Since becoming a registered charity in October 2020, we are now able to expand our support service to cover The Scottish Highlands, where we provide monthly support groups, break out personal sessions as required, a 24/7 Helpline & various other support events throughout the year.
