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 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. There is no cost for the group, but pre-registration is necessary.
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
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.
Courses will be added throughout the year. Visit WellSpanPhilhaven.org/RemembranceGroup.
