& 3rd Tuesdays
A survivor of suicide is a person who has lost a close family member
or friend to suicide. Often people in the social circle of survivors
do not understand suicide or are afraid to talk about it. Sitting
in a room with other suicide survivors may the one healing environment
where you can share your pain without fear of judgment, knowing
that those around you understand that grief from suicide is a uniquely
painful and complicated form of bereavement.
As a member of our Beyond Suicide Group, you will become part of
a group where survivors search for answers, cope with the trauma
of suicide, and help each other feel that they are not alone in
this heartbreaking loss. Members in this group safely share their
individual grief reactions and talk with other survivors on how
they have coped with symptoms like shock, depression, intense sadness,
anger, guilt, and perhaps even feelings of abandonment.
You are not alone in your grief. There are millions of survivors
who, like you, are trying to cope with the loss of someone they
love through the tragedy of suicide death.
Size of the group: Generally 6-8 members.
Facilitated by two trained volunteer facilitators.
