Curriculum:  Understanding Your Suicide Grief by Alan D. Wolfelt, Ph.D


The Understanding Your Suicide Grief Journal.  The books are not required.   Photo copies of each chapter will be provided for those who choose not to purchase the books.


The curriculum offers an invitation to open your heart.

"Take this sorrow onto thy heart, and make it a part of thee, and it shall nourish thee till thou art strong again."  -Longfellow


"Surrounded by my memories, I took my pen and began to write."

-Kuki Gallmann


Feel free to send us a photo of your loved one to add to our blog photo reel.


If you have a gift you would like to share within our group such as art, music or a sport, we can incorporate these activities into our group schedule.  We welcome guest speakers. 


We provide a library of books at each group to check out for your convenience.


We provide other resources related to grief and trauma, including marketing materials for suicide prevention.


Please seek the help you need.  This is a complicated type of grief which requires treatment for the grief and trauma.  Isolation from this type of grief is prevalent and unhealthy.  Yes, there are people in your circle who will not understand what you are going through.  It's okay, this group will understand and will support you.  You want to move through your grief not around it.  Please be aware ignoring your grief may manifest into unhealthy behaviors.  Insight from others may assist in recognizing where you are and others can share their ideas.  We do not offer advice.  We offer support.  No judgement or condemnation.


 Never Give up.  "Embrace the glorious mess that you are." -Unknown
