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, and the groups are small and private, so you’ll feel truly seen and heard. You’ll be amazed at how warm, welcoming, and genuine Zoom support groups can be.

Our groups are professionally facilitated by the Coping After Suicide® Support Group Facilitator Corps -- trained, highly-skilled, experienced, and knowledgeable individuals who, like you, have all lost someone they love to suicide. 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 $435 for new members ($395 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.

"This group has given me so much,

it's hard to find the words."

 

"The group has been extraordinarily helpful for me.

I have felt a deep inner shift happen."

“I will be forever thankful for these groups."

"This is just what I needed."

"My only regret is not joining sooner.”

Please read our FAQ's to see if a Coping After Suicide support group feels like a good fit for you.

A brief intake conversation is required before registering, and can be scheduled at any time. To set up a call, just email the facilitator of the group you're interested in. If you've already had your intake conversation, you can register here.
