Get Urgent Help

Episode 9

In this episode, Adam, Chief Executive at Everyturn talks to Angela Allen, Chief Executive at BAGS for Strife.

Angela lost two family members to suicide, 8 months apart. During this incredibly tragic time, Angela felt that there was a lack of support available for those affected by loss to suicide.

With the aim of ensuring that those affected by suicide feel supported and cared for, Angela set up BAGS for Strife.

Bags for Strife is a charity set up by people who have lost loved ones to suicide. They have all experienced blame, anger, guilt and sadness. Now we want to share what has helped us to help those whose journey is just beginning.”
