Telephone Visit Guidelines

Before you make an SOP visit by telephone, please click the link below and read the attached document for guidelines on how to talk to suicide loss survivors by phone.  The chapter is taken from Pathways to Purpose & Hope: A Guide for Creating a Sustainable Grief Support Organization for Families and Friends after a Suicide Death, which was created by Friends for Survival.  The chapter pertains specifically to the first phone contact with a loss survivor looking to join a support group, but the same information can be usefully applied to SOP phone visits as well.
