Recently Georgia has added SOS Survivors of Suicide support groups for Families, Teens and Children to their efforts to support survivors of a suicide loss. In May 2016, we hosted a Train-the-Trainer for the BraveHearts SOS Support Program. This actual program will be a 6 week closed group (same people all 6 weeks), that is designed around a loss by suicide with age specific groups and curriculum.
These programs are based on a peer-to-peer model and can be led by professionals, non-professionals or a mix of professionals/non-professionals/survivors. If your community is interested in organizing groups for families, or teens contact us and lets talk about how you can bring these services to your area.
If you would like to take part in upcoming/future trainings, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
