SOS Offers Hope for Those Left Behind
The Suicide and Crisis Center offers a unique program for those who have experienced the loss of a loved one to suicide. All of our services are free to the community.
"...the group literally pulled me through my darkest days when even my closest relatives and friends did not understand what to do or how to help."
Grief is the Beginning of Healing
Many people who experience the loss of a loved one go through a similar healing process. They share the common feelings you do: anger, guilt, shame, and even disbelief. SOS offers a structured eight-week group led by two trained facilitators, at least one of whom is a survivor themselves. Participants become part of a caring program, where they are encouraged to share their feelings with others and gain perspective on their loss.
After completion of the eight-week group, ongoing support is offered through a program called Next Step. For more information, call us at 214-824-7020 or complete the contact form.
