Survivors Support for Loss after Suicide (Six Week Support Group)

Tues. April 16, 23, 30 and May 7, 14, 21 from 5:30 – 7 p.m.

Have you lost a loved one to suicide? If so, you are a survivor of suicide loss. A survivor may be a spouse or partner, child, close family member, co-worker or anyone who is impacted by loss to suicide.

When a person dies because they have taken their own life, the effect on survivors can be devastating. Grief can be intensified. Common feelings include shock, anger, guilt, depression, confusion and shame.

Losing a loved one to suicide involves a distinctive bereavement process. To help in the healing process, this six week group provides a structured, supportive environment to help you on your grief journey.

This program is being held at Piedmont Crossing – Main Entrance
100 Hedrick Drive in Thomasville. Please register by calling 336-475-5444.

What is Hospice Care?

Hospice is a specialized type of health care that is delivered by our own physicians, nurses, Hospice aides and social workers. Many patients and families also choose to include additional team members such as a spiritual counselor, grief counselor, and a volunteer.
