Survivors After Suicide Loss Support Groups

Our support groups are made up of people just like you who have lost someone they loved to suicide. When you are ready and able to talk about it, we are here to listen and offer the support you need at this time of your loss.

In our support groups you will find kindness, warmth, a shoulder to cry on and friendship. Best of all we are people who care and want to listen to your story. We understand your sorrow.

Will you always feel the way you do now? The answer, truthfully, is no. Will you always remember? Yes. We can help you start your healing journey and walk the journey with you to healing. All the feelings you have are completely normal. You’re grieving the loss of the person you loved and they died too soon.

Meeting times, place

All groups meet on Thursdays from 6-8 p.m. at our office at 211 E. Franklin St., Appleton.
