the person who dies and the survivors who are bereaved." ~ Arnold Toynbee
We are a group of survivors who have lost loved ones to suicide. We are spouses, siblings, parents, children, partners, friends, family, coworkers, etc...who have all lost someone to suicide.
We range from people who have lost a loved one in the past month, to people who have lost a loved one many years ago. The grief of losing a loved one to suicide is an intense feeling that is often hard to describe to someone that has not survived a suicide.
No one should have to experience the death of a loved one to suicide, but we have.
You are not alone.
The Suicide Support Group meeting at the Grace Episcopal Church has been continuously running for 20+ years and new members are always joining us. The group participants are constantly changing based on survivors needs. The mix of people who attend varies from meeting to meeting, we generally welcome many new survivors at most meetings. The meetings are open to all survivors to attend and there are no fees. Because of our central location, most people who attend come from Morris, Somerset, Sussex, and Warren counties, but all are welcome.
The meetings are not faith based and the Grace Episcopal Church has graciously allowed us to use their facilities for many years.
