Suicide Attempt Peer Support Group

Overview

Have you struggled with thoughts of suicide? Have you had one or more attempts? Whether it has been a short period of time or a long duration since your attempt, this peer support group might be a perfect place for you to connect as you journey on the road of hope and healing. 

Our Suicide Attempt Peer Support Group is a monthly group facilitated by a licensed clinician and a survivor of a serious attempt. This is not a therapeutic group but is intended to create a peer network of support for those who have survived suicidal thoughts and actions. This is a place to connect and find hope.

This endeavor will develop a peer-driven support group that assists attendees in sharing their experiences in finding strategies to help cope with thoughts and feelings of suicide, to share what has and has not helped in overcoming these challenges, and to develop an encouraging network of support. 

Participants are encouraged to share and to discuss their changing feelings while taking the healing journey.  Attendees are not required to share but should feel comfortable doing so, as this group strives to be open and supportive.

Ideal Attendee

Anyone who has struggled with suicidal thoughts and/or has had one or more suicide attempts. Duration since attempt can be any length of time. Survivors who attempted many years ago are welcome to attend.
