Survivor of Suicide Support Group (SOS)
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.
Monroe County Public Library, Downtown Kirkwood Ave Branch
303 East Kirkwood Ave
The group meets continuously throughout the year. Meetings are held monthly on the fourth Sunday of the month from 12:00 pm (noon) to 2:00 pm.
SOS-Survivor of Suicide Support group has been in existence for 10 years. Facilitated by Theresa Wellman, who lost her husband to suicide 8 years ago, and alternately, Therapist Ron Masters, who lost his brother to suicide. All survivors of suicide aged 16 and above are welcome.
This group is open, which means that new members may join at any time.
You are invited to call before you come, or simply show up at the Sunday meeting, and know you will be welcome.
