Hi I need some help and advice please my friend has MS and is alone. She lost her husband a year ago and is severely depressed and suicidal at times. She is wheelchair bound most of the time. She lives in wales I live in Wiltshire so cannot see her as often as I liked to. What I’d like to know is what charity organisations can I contact to try and get her some help even if it’s just someone to talk to. Any advice would be appreciated and thank you in anticipation
