What is the SOS support group?
Our Survivors of Suicide (SOS) support group is a peer support group for those who have been closely impacted by a suicide loss. The group has two co-facilitators - a survivor of suicide and a licensed therapist. The SOS group is not a therapy group. Members of the group receive support, guidance, understanding, compassion, comfort, resources, belonging, and social interaction from others who have lost a loved one to suicide.
The SOS support group meets weekly on Tuesdays at 6:30 PM and now offers a Zoom meeting link to attend virtually.
What do we mean by a "survivor," or a, "survivor of suicide?"
A survivor of suicide is any individual who has experienced the death of someone close to them as a result of suicide. They are intimately and directly affected by a suicide and self-define as survivors after the suicide of another person. Survivors can include family, friends, coworkers, or any other person impacted by the loss.
