Group Demographic

This is a group for folks who have lost a loved one to suicide. It is a peer support group, not a therapy group, but we do have professional support by a therapist who sits in on group meetings. It is facilitated by volunteers who are also survivors. The group structure is discussion and sharing based but sharing is not required. Members of the group offer support to each other and are able to speak freely, where they may not in other areas of their lives, because the experience of losing a loved one to suicide is common to everyone in this safe space.

Group Type

This group is open, which means that new members may join at any time.

Registration

We require that new attendees are at least 6 weeks into their grief journey AND that they first call our SOSL line and receive a return call from/speak with a member of our volunteer facilitator team. We do not disclose location until then.
