Suicide loss support groups

Coping After Suicide® peer support groups are for those who’ve lost a loved one to suicide. 

 

We meet on Zoom so you can participate from wherever you live (you’ll be amazed at how warm, welcoming, and genuine Zoom support groups can be).

 

The groups are small and private, so you’ll feel truly seen and heard.

 

They’re professionally facilitated by a hand-picked member of the Coping After Suicide® Support Group Facilitator Corps, who are all highly-skilled, experienced, and knowledgeable individuals with a deep personal and professional understanding of suicide loss. You’ll receive valuable evidence-informed strategies and resources for coping with this complicated and painful loss. 

 

All groups meet in 10-session cycles and new members are welcomed at the beginning of each cycle:

 

  • Spring Cycle (January-April)

  • Summer Cycle (May-August)

  • Fall Cycle (September-December)

 

The registration fee for each 10-session cycle is $425 for new members ($385 for continuing/returning members). To make sure you’ll have a safe space for meaningful sharing, membership is limited and filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

For more detailed information about our groups and facilitators, please read our FAQ's. If a Coping After Suicide support group feels like a good fit for you, just contact the facilitator of the group you're interested in to set up a brief intake conversation before you register.

"This group has given me so much,

it's hard to find the words."

 

"The group has been extraordinaily helpful for me.

I have felt a deep inner shift happen."

“I found I kept saying to myself: 'omg yes'."

"This is just what I needed."

"My only regret is not joining sooner.”
