Event description

Description

The Okanagan Suicide Awareness Society support group is a place where we come together with no shame, and help each other heal the wounds of untimely deaths.

Survivors often experience shared themes as they move through the grieving process. A supportive environment offers survivors the freedom to share, knowing that they are not alone.

The magnitude of the pain and grief of a suicide loss is beyond what one can comprehend. The sense of guilt , the sense of abandonment, and the sense of shame are just a few of the many complex emotions with which each survivor will come face to face. The long term stigma and taboos which are closely associated with suicide do not make the healing journey any easier. In fact, our silence makes it really difficult for survivors to move along in their healing and feel supported by others who may also be grieving a suicide loss.

  • Free for individuals (18+) who have lost loved ones to suicide
  • This is an opportunity to connect and share in a safe and supportive environment with others who understand your grief
  • Group is Drop-In style (RSVP is not required however appreciated)
  • New members welcome every month
