Survivors of Suicide

Survivors of Suicide (SOS) is a support group open to anyone who has experienced the loss of a relative or a friend through suicide. We share the common trauma.

 

Survivors Of Suicide exists because surviving the death by suicide of a loved one, a family member, or a friend is different from a terminal illness, accidental causes, homicide, sudden illness, or natural causes.

 

Why is this so?

 

• We have deep feelings of abandonment, of guilt.

 

• We may have intense anger, and intense sadness.

 

• We may feel shame or embarrassment.

 

• We feel pain, we ache: we are grieving.

 

• We grieve not only for the person who died by suicide, we grieve for us, the survivors.

 

SOS can help you through your grief, your ache, your struggle to wholeness.

 

SOS: A Safe Place

 

Survivors need a safe place to explore their feelings of grief and anger, to raise questions and doubts.

 

Some survivors have attended an SOS meeting the day of the funeral. Others have come a few months after; some, a few years later. There is no timetable for grief.

 

• We will welcome you at any time. We are here when you are ready for us, and for as long as you need us.

 

• We will listen to you.

 

• We care about living, about loving.

 

• We care about you.
