Losing a loved one to suicide can leave family and friends feeling alone and confused. This group will help survivors of suicide (family and friends of those who have died by suicide) feel understood and connected with others who have walked this difficult journey. Group members will use art, music, journaling and other experiential 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 and supports, as appropriate.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Group members should be at least 14 years old, have lost a family member or friend to suicide and be able to participate in a group setting. Older teenagers (14-18) 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 participating family members, nor for individuals who are actively
suicidal or homicidal, or for whom discussion of loss in a group setting would be traumatic.
