Additional Information

SOS Support Group is an informal group that does not follow a specific agenda. The facilitator is there to guide discussion and encourage members to share the issues they are struggling with; however, members may always pass if they are not comfortable sharing at any given time.

The group is on-going, and participants share and learn from each other’s experiences. What is said in the group needs to stay within the group. Members are in a vulnerable state when they choose to attend a support group, and the group is designed to help members feel safe so they are able to talk about the difficult feelings and emotions arising from the loss of a loved one to suicide.
