Sometimes in life, events occur that fracture the very foundation on which we stand. Our life, as we have known it, is forever changed and we find ourselves in an unexpected struggle, first just to survive and then to move forward.
Williamsburg SOSL (Survivors of Suicide Loss) provides healing support for people coping with the shock, excruciating grief and complex emotions that accompany the loss of a loved one to suicide. We hope that you will find resources here to help you deal with, and eventually heal from, what may well be the worst pain you will ever feel.
It is important to know that people can and do survive loss by suicide. They are forever altered and may never stop missing their loved ones, but they do survive and go on to lead meaningful and contributory lives.
Our support group was created by survivors for survivors in 2012. Our mission is to recognize and respect the courage and resilience of suicide survivors at all stages of their personal journeys. We focus on hope and healing in a positive manner.
We invite you to join us the first Thursday of each month at 7:00pm. We are peer lead and meet at Hospice House of Williamsburg at 4445 Powhatan Parkway Williamsburg, Virginia 23188. There is no registration necessary to attend. Follow us on our Facebook Page at Williamsburg Survivors of Suicide Loss and contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Call Charlotte at 757-903-1641, if you want to talk.
