HELP - HOPE - HEALING

For those who have lost a loved one by suicide


As a candle lights the darkness,
may this site shed light on your recovery journey.
And may the light of God's love comfort your grieving spirit.


The death of a loved one by suicide presents special problems in grieving. There is often more shock, a greater sense of injustice, more guilt and blame, and a heightened sense of helplessness; and these all tend to complicate the healing process for survivors.

There is a safe place in our community for survivors (families and loved ones of suicide victims) to share their loss with others who are experiencing similar thoughts and feelings. Groups are open to all adult survivors of suicide and are held at the locations below:

    A FEATURE ON THE FOUNDING OF OUR SUPPORT GROUP, FROM THE HENDERSON VIEW FROM MAY OF 2016

    In 1993, Henderson resident Linda Flatt looked for a support group to help her deal with her son’s suicide. She didn’t find one. “I went to a general grief group, and I felt completely out of place,” she said. “I was in there with people that had lost their (spouses) after 60 years of marriage, and my kid had ended his life on purpose.”
