Find a Support Group

Many people who have lost a family member, friend, classmate, or colleague to suicide find that sharing openly with fellow suicide loss survivors about what they’ve lived through can help with the healing process.

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.

Bear in Mind

  • Some support groups have a set number of meetings with a specific start date; others are ongoing and allow you to attend as often or as infrequently as you wish. 
  • Each support group has its own unique character.  If you attend a group that isn’t a good fit for you, try another group.
