Welcome -- to the group no one should be a part of...
If you have lost someone to suicide, the first thing you should know is
that you are not alone. Each year over 40,000 people in the United
States die by suicide. The devastated family and friends they leave
behind are known as "survivors". There are millions of survivors who,
like you, are trying to cope with this heartbreaking tragedy. Losing a loved one to suicide is different from any other loss. We suffer a secondary trauma on top of the pain of death; we are all too often also ostracized, blamed, and judged. The anguish we feel and the continued question of "WHY?" can haunt us and debilitate us if we are forced to process something like this alone. We welcome all survivors of suicide loss to consider joining our group, as we believe that each of us can play an
essential part in one another’s healing process.
