Survivors of Suicide (SOS) Support Group
WHEN: 2nd Tuesday of every month from 6:30-8:00pm (See Events Calendar for additional sessions)
WHERE: Mound City Bank Motor Branch, Platteville
After the devastating loss of our wonderful son, Benjamin, November 11, 2014; we have started a support group to help others who have been put in this unfortunate position. We invite those who have lost a loved one to suicide to come share their story. We realize it’s a courageous step as we have welcomed others who have lost someone 10, 20, or 30 years ago and who are still struggling with despair from their loss and also the unfortunate stigma others associate to suicide. We want to reassure these brave people that attend our SOS meetings that our group is not here to judge. It is our intent to share our stories, give hope, and find healing in our hearts as well as comfort and happiness sharing wonderful memories of those we’ve loved and lost that will remain forever in our hearts.
