What we're about
This is a group for those who have lost friends and family members to suicide. This is not a therapy or counseling group. I have found comfort in being around others who know what I am going through. The group will be focused on social activities where we can support each other, share wisdom, or just be sociable. This group is open to everyone who has lost someone to suicide, and it does not matter if it was yesterday or 50 years ago.
As I know there are different levels of comfort about sharing this loss, I will keep the privacy settings as restricted as Meetup allows. Please, do not share information about other members without their permission. You are welcome to share as much or as little information as you wish.
This group is not affiliated with any suicide prevention or support group. However, we may share or participate in other organizations fundraising drives or events.
The intent is to create a compassionate, social group for people in all stages of recovering from this loss.
