"Your Wings Were Ready...

But Our Hearts Were Not"

The Pain: We know only too well, the pain we have to carry with us the moment our loved ones end their pain and suffering. This is why our own wellbeing is so important.

The Isolation: When those around you don't understand, or there is no one at all to reach out to, then a community like this is essential to give you support, hope and connection.

Grief: All grief is different and suicide grief takes on another level.  It's complicated. Only those grieiving loss to suicide can fully understand.  Grief needs to be able to express itself and move.  Grief is love....and love never dies.

Compassion:  We are all grieving in our own way and so we can show compassion to others by just being there, listening and reaching out. There's zero judgement here. We care and support one another.

My Story

(I hope becomes someone else's survival guide)

Losing my only sibling to suicide has changed me, my family, and my life forever. I've been vocal throughout my grief journey since that day in June 2020, as it's my way of dealing with it. I've found my voice and I'm using it (for a change!). My pain is moving into a purpose. My mission is to make suicide loss and grief openly acceptable and easier to talk about, and, to help those with suicidal thoughts to stay and find ways to live, better. 

Together we are stronger.  Together we will make a difference.

Why Paradisium?

This is 'The Paradisium Tree of Hope & Healing' offering anyone affected by suicide to find ways to heal.

When my brother died by suicide in 2020, he changed his online profile picture that day to "Escape To Paradise".  

We use this to give us comfort knowing he is now resting in paradise.

"Paradisium" was born out of a conversation between me and a school friend of my brother's at the start of 2021, when we spoke about setting up an online choir during lockdown to help with grief.

I originally set up 'branches' of The Paradisium Tree with grief workshops and classes such as art & crafts, singing, dancing, book club, writing club, meditations, walking etc.  All designed to help you and your wellbeing. *These are currently on hold until further notice.*
