Have you lost a friend or family member to suicide? Do you know someone who is struggling because of a suicide loss?
Jewish Family & Children’s Service (JF&CS) is now offering a support group for suicide loss survivors. Our goal is to provide survivors a place where they can be comfortable expressing themselves, a place to find comfort, resources and hope in a judgement-free environment.
Facilitators have been trained by Samaritans of Boston and bring relevant professional and personal experience to providing healing support in a safe space.
Meetings are held virtually twice a month.
For more information, please contact Marjorie Sokoll at firstname.lastname@example.org or 781-693-5619 to learn about the group and discuss how we can be of assistance to you.
