What is an SOS group?
Our SOS support group is a peer support group for survivors of suicide. 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. If you would like to attend or support this group, please contact us at 944-2561.
