Remembrance Support Group
After the loss of a loved one to suicide
Losing a loved one to suicide can leave family and friends feeling alone and confused. This 6-week group will help survivors of suicide (family and friends of those who have completed suicide) feel understood and connected with others who have walked this difficult journey. Group members will use art, music, journaling and other experimental therapies to take steps toward healing. The group will focus on remembering loved ones in healthy and life-giving ways. Participants will also be connected to other Lebanon County services, including the Remembrance Garden, as appropriate.
Who Should Attend
Group members should be at least 18 years old, have lost a family member or friend to suicide and be able to participate in a group setting. Older teenagers will be considered if accompanied by an adult family member and approved by the group facilitators. This group is not appropriate for children or for teens without nparticipating family members, nor for individuals who are actively suicidal or homicidal, or for whom discussion of loss in a group setting would be traumatic.
Participants will receive a call from the group facilitator prior to the start of the group.
