After every suicide, family and friends are left behind. We offer several types of bereavement support.
Telephone Emotional Support: We are here to talk with you about your feelings any time of the day or night. We can also mail you information specially written for those who have lost a loved one to suicide. Call the 24-Hour Crisis Line to receive support.
Drop-In Bereavement Group: We offer a twice monthly professionally-facilitated support group, held at 6:30 PM on the first and third Monday of each month (including holidays) at our Business Office. No registration is required and a voluntary donation is suggested.
Six-Week Bereavement Support Group: This group is designed for those who are at least three months beyond the suicide and who desire more support in a closed group setting.
Losing a loved one to suicide involves a unique and complicated grief. The Survivors of Suicide Bereavement Support Group provides a safe environment where others engaged in the same experience can speak freely. To assist in the healing process, this six-week closed group provides a structured and supportive journey through complicated grief. The group is facilitated by a mental health professional experienced in suicide bereavement and the group is limited to no more than 10 individuals.
The group is held for six consecutive Thursdays, 6:30-9:00 PM
Winter 2013: January 24 to February 28
Spring 2013: May 9 to June 13
Summer 2013: August 15 to September 19
