Suicide Prevention of Yolo County (SPYC) holds a monthly “Friends and Families of Suicide Loss Support Group” or Survivors Support group at Yolo Hospice on Wednesdays. The May group meets from 6- 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 2, and the June group will meet on Wednesday, June 13.
The effect of a suicide on friends and family can be overwhelming. Survivors of suicide loss often state that no other loss has been as painful or confusing. Additional feelings of guilt, anger, and sadness can create a complicated grief process. In a group with others who have shared a similar loss, support comes from exploring, sharing, and clarifying feelings. Since suicide grief can have an ongoing impact, individuals are encouraged to consider attending no matter how long ago the suicide occurred.
There is no fee for this group, which is funded by the Ladd Clark Memorial Fund and Suicide Prevention of Yolo County.
