Hope & Healing: Coping with the Suicide of a Loved One

Hope & Healing: Coping with the Suicide of a Loved One is a ten-week education program for individuals who have lost a loved one to suicide. Our hope is to provide a supportive environment that encourages listening and sharing stories with others who have experienced a loss through suicide, while enhancing your understanding about suicide and helping you move forward in the healing process. A trained facilitator and health care professionals offer information on the grieving process, self-care, coping strategies and community resources.

Suicide is a heartbreaking and compelling tragedy which touches many of our lives. Learning to live after the death of a friend or family member is always painful and difficult. When someone has lost a loved one to suicide, the grieving process can be more complicated and vary in several ways. Along with the grief, individuals coping with a suicide must deal with the social stigma as well as emotions of guilt, anger, feelings of rejection and the struggle to find an explanation.

The aim of Hope & Healing is to provide education, help, and understanding in a cooperative and friendly atmosphere. Confidentiality and privacy of sharing within the program is strongly promoted.
