Peer Support for Survivors of Suicide Loss
You are not alone. AFSP offers resources to help loss survivors cope, connect, and heal in time. Our trained peer support volunteers are all suicide loss survivors who know firsthand how difficult it can be to find your way in the aftermath of a suicide. Upon request, they are available to speak with you by phone, in person (limited availability), by video call (Google Hangout, Skype, Facetime), or via email.
When you contact us to request a visit, we will ask you some questions about your loss so that we may match you with a suitable volunteer who has experienced a similar loss. Your peer support volunteer will contact you to schedule a visit at a convenient time and, in the case of in-person visits, at a comfortable location of your choice.
