Survivors of suicide

This support group for adults who have lost a loved one to suicide holds twice-monthly meetings that run for eight-session cycles. The  group offers opportunities to:

  • Develop a caring support network
  • Learn healthy coping and healing skills
  • Provide a safe place for survivors to share thoughts and feelings
  • Learn about bereavement and grief and their impact on us

The group meets at U-M’s Turner Senior Resource Center the second and fourth Thursday of each month from 7-8:30 p.m. The support group is free, but pre-registration is required, and only adults 18 years or older may attend. Sessions are professionally facilitated by social workers from U-M’s Psychiatric Emergency Services. Contact Kim Ballard at 734-936-4855 to register or learn more.
