AFSP makes the support group listings directory for suicide loss survivors available as a public service and does not run, recommend, endorse, or fund any of the groups listed. In addition, we do not monitor individual groups and only update information as it is made available to us by the facilitators and/or sponsoring organizations.
Please follow up with the listed contact to ensure their group is still active and confirm both meeting times and location.

The general group is open to anyone who has lost a loved one to suicide. The parents group is specifically for those who have lost a child.
This group is closed, which means that new members may join only at specific times or under certain circumstances.
