If you have lost a family member or friend to suicide, or if you are supporting someone who has, you may be discovering that not a lot of people want to talk about it, either, because they just don’t ‘get it’.

 

The truth is, grieving for someone who died by suicide is more complicated that mourning for a person who died from natural causes.

 

The Canadian Mental Health Association (Kingston Branch) knows this, and sponsors a discussion group specifically for persons reconciling the loss of a loved one by suicide, or helping another person to do so.

 

Our group focuses on expressing grief, sharing stories, and engaging in recovery centered activities.

 

Our series covers topics such as:

  • Why?
  • Grief
  • Acceptance
  • Relationships
  • Guilt
  • Anger
  • Rebuilding Your Life
  • Coping Strategies
  • Relief
  • Stigma and Shame
  • Depression
  • Transforming Pain
  • and more…

 

We meet at Unit 3, 400 Elliott Avenue every 2nd Tuesday of the month from  7pm to 9m.
