Losing a loved one to suicide is a painful and difficult experience that can leave survivors feeling isolated. Safe Place provides those who have lost someone to suicide a caring, confidential support group where they do not have to be alone with their grief.
Safe Place is free of charge and confidential. Meetings are facilitated by Samaritan-trained volunteers, many of whom are survivors themselves. A welcoming, safe environment is created which honors and respects the needs of all participants.
Every loss survivor grieves differently and at his own pace. During a session, survivors can choose to share as little or as much as they like. Some survivors bring a friend or family member for support; others bring photos of the loved one they lost. There is no “right” time to start attending and there is not a recommended number of meetings you need to attend – the only thing that matters is what feels right to each survivor.
