Loss Support Group
Need Help? If you’ve lost someone to suicide, you are not alone. Ray of Hope has a LOSS (Loved Ones Stolen by Suicide) support group. There is no charge and individuals may join at any time and attend as often as needed.
Meetings are held on the 1st Tuesday of every month from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at the Mental Health America office in South Greensburg. For more information, call 724-834-6351, ext 118.
The trauma of suicide often brings with it a loss of the sense of safety; survivors often become very protective of themselves and their loved ones. At LOSS, we offer the opportunity for sharing, support, and encouragement for anyone who has experienced the unique and profound grief of losing a loved one to suicide.
Hope & Healing Support Group
Hope & Healing is an informal “open” suicide attempt support group. It offers the opportunity for sharing, support, and encouragement for anyone needing to find Hope and Healing after a suicide attempt.
Meetings are held the 1st & 3rd Monday of every month from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm at the MHA office in South Greensburg.
Suicide is a topic we take seriously but are not intimidated by. This is a safe place to talk about suicidality. We are here to support each other, not to judge. We want to create an environment that is safe and open to everyone. People benefit from the group differently. Some people feel relief just talking and sharing; while others want something more concrete in the way of skills. We’ve tried to incorporate both of these aspects into the group.
