Outreach to Survivors of Suicide Loss

Outreach to Survivors of Suicide Loss

After a suicide those left behind often wonder if anyone out there really understands.

For people who have recently lost someone to suicide, it is often helpful to meet and speak with another person who has experienced this kind of loss in the past. When two survivors of suicide loss meet, they often find that they share a common understanding of the kind of loneliness, pain, grief, anger, sadness, and guilt that can overwhelm survivors in the wake of a suicide.

To help people who have recently experienced a loss, local trained survivors of suicide loss from our chapter are available upon request to visit and offer peer support to the newly bereaved.

Click here to learn more about what to expect during a visit. If your interested in volunteering with the program, click here.

Contact your local coordinator to request a visit. (Please know that we can only meet with families and friends who have personally requested a visit.)
