For Support Group Facilitators

List Your Group

If you run a support group for survivors of suicide loss, please submit this short online form so that we can add your group to our online directory.  Please use the same form if you need to make any changes or additions to your existing support group listing or if you'd like us to remove your listing.  

Please note that our website only lists bereavement support groups for survivors of suicide loss; we do not list general bereavement groups.  Thanks for your cooperation.

Please note that we are trying to clear a substantial backlog of support group update forms and that it may take some time before we are able to change or add your listing.  If you have any urgent changes or additions to make, please follow up with Inge De Taeye, AFSP’s Loss & Bereavement Programs Manager, at after you submit your online form.


Our Facilitator Training Program teaches survivors of suicide loss and mental health professionals how to start and facilitate a suicide bereavement support group.  The two-day trainings are appropriate for new facilitators who want to start a group as well as current facilitators who want to strengthen their skills.

Drop-In Conference Calls for Facilitators

AFSP hosts monthly conference calls for support group facilitators. These drop-in conference calls are open forums where facilitators can ask questions and learn from one another. Whether you are a new facilitator or have been running a group for years, the conference calls can help you to be a more effective and creative facilitator. All facilitators are welcome.

The calls last about one hour and there is no charge to join. Facilitators are welcome to "drop in" on the calls whenever they like, whether for a few minutes or for the whole hour.
