Kentucky Survivors Of Suicide Groups

.

The purpose of a Survivors Of Suicide group is to help those who have lost a loved one to suicide resolve their grief and pain in their own personal way.

The grief that survivors of suicide experience is unique. The questions often left behind are at times unbearable. The Survivor of Suicide Groups can offer information that will help answer some of those questions, as well as provide a safe place for survivors and friends of survivors to share their struggle and pain and offer comfort and understanding to others who have experienced a similar loss.

For questions or more information about a Survivors of Suicide group in your area, please contact the person listed as the Meeting Contact or go to a meeting, they are there for you.
