Survivors of Suicide Support GroupIt can be so powerful to connect with other survivors. And such a relief to be able to talk openly about suicide with people who really understand. For so many survivors, a crucial part of their healing process is the support and sense of connection they feel through sharing their grief with other survivors. The most common way this sharing occurs is through survivor support groups. These groups provide a safe place where survivors can share their experiences and support each other.
