Sibling Link’s peer support groups have come to a gentle end. The last meetings are to be held in May 2024

In person or online, Sibling Link’s aim is to keep the conversation about mental health going in the hope that stigma surrounding our mental health completely disappears.

Welcome to Sibling Link

If you have a brother or sister affected by mental ill health, you will have experienced some distress.

We ran two peer support groups for adults; one for those who are caring for, affected by or worried about their sibling who is experiencing mental ill health. The other was specifically for those of us – not limited to siblings – who have been bereaved by suicide. The focus was on talking and listening.

Sadly we have now brought these groups to a gentle close. After running the groups for 8 years we felt the time had come to finish. We are enormously proud and hope that people now know they are not alone with some very universal feelings.

Our online platform provides advice and information for anyone (not limited to siblings) who needs signposting to the right help and resource. It is also a virtual space for anyone within which to share their story. We will keep this platform running for the foreseeable future.

Meet our founders

We are Tash and Bex and we are quietly optimistic that the momentum on talking about mental health – we all have mental health – is gathering pace. We are privileged and honoured to be part of that shift and hope to keep it going for as long as it takes for the stigma surrounding mental ill health to completely disappear.

Alastair's Story

Writer and communicator Alastair Campbell has kindly allowed us to share ths story of his brother, Donald.

Donald was not ‘a schizophrenic’. He was a man who had schizophrenia. Big difference. He refused to let his life be defined by his illness. And he was a man who lived an amazing life despite it.

"Sibling Link was born out of a very real sense that life can feel less daunting if you simply have a conversation with someone who is in the same boat as you."
