Survivors of Suicide Loss Support Group
March 2024

Too many people in our community have been touched by direct experience of a loss from suicide. 
Any form of grief can be challenging, but the emotions experienced after a suicide can be more intense and conflicting compared to other types of loss. Survivors might feel anger, guilt, confusion, and despair all at once. There’s often a strong sense of guilt, with survivors wondering if they could have done something to prevent the death causing a sense of responsibility or guilt.

This search for answers can be mentally and emotionally exhausting.

You may not feel you are a ‘group’ person but compassionate support and understanding can make a huge difference in providing support for family and friends left behind trying to make sense of a loss by suicide.

Lorraine Steppe and Bill Hawley host ‘Survivors of Suicide Loss’, a support group that meets monthly in Buffalo.  Listen and find out more about this safe and confidential space for those who have had any kind of experience of suicide.
