Support Groups for Survivors of Suicide Loss

The death of a loved one by suicide presents special problems in grieving, such as experiencing more shock, a greater sense of injustice, more guilt and blame, and a heightened sense of helplessness which all complicate the healing process. A safe place exists in our community for adult survivors of suicide loss (families and loved ones of suicide victims) to share their loss with others who are experiencing similar thoughts and feelings.
