Suicide Grievers Support Group
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.
Chesapeake Life Center
90 Ritchie Highway
The group meets continuously throughout the year. Meetings are held monthly on the second Tuesday of the month from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm.

Our group is open to anyone who is grieving the death of a loved one to suicide, whether family member or friend. We have adults of all ages, grieving a variety of relationships. Folks drop-in whenever they need to, sometimes every month, sometimes only now and again.
This group is open, which means that new members may join at any time.
We ask that you contact us by phone or email before coming to your first group so we can learn a bit about you and tell you about the group, to be sure you are prepared for a group experience. Sometimes this screening is done over the phone, sometimes in person (at no charge).
