Grief is often complicated; but it can be even more so when the loss you’re experiencing is from suicide. Experiencing the death of a loved one by their own hand can leave survivors feeling conflicting and sometimes confusing emotions.
But you don’t have to work through the confusion alone.
If you’re having a difficult time and looking for help, there is a Samaritans Southcoast support group that offers free support to loss survivors who have lost loved ones to suicide. The service focuses on non-judgmental listening, compassion, and peer support through Safe Place, a grief support group facilitated by trained Samaritans volunteers.
It meets next tonight, Jan. 19 from 6-7:30 p.m., via Zoom.
Attending a support group for the first time can be difficult, Samaritans Southcoast said in a released statement. Group facilitators are sensitive to that and available to answer any questions or concerns you might like to address before the meeting.
