Leeds Suicide Bereavement Service (LSBS) is a partnership project between Leeds Mind and Leeds Survivor Led Crisis Service.  The project supports people in the immediate aftermath of a suicide and people who have been bereaved in the past.

This is an exciting project at the cutting edge of suicide prevention work, with an opportunity to contribute to the international evidence base for Postvention work. We seek to recruit to the following post, which is a one year contract to cover Maternity Leave.

The post holder will be employed by LSLCS and seconded to Leeds Mind.
