Our In Person Meetings Are Now Virtual

All in-person support group meetings are cancelled for April and May.   Join us for a virtual meeting instead.  


April's topic will be:  Understanding the reaction of others. 


In our meetings and webinars, we share our struggles with grief after a suicide death. We share our frustrations and questions.  We take this journey together as we help each other cope.   Our meetings are peer support, not therapy sessions.   

 

All meeting dates and times are drop-in meetings.   No RSVP or pre-registration required.
