Heartbeat Suicide Loss Survivor Support Group

 


Bemidji, MN, (Date): The next meeting of the Heartbeat Support Group for survivors of suicide loss will be Feb 9th. Many people who have lost a family member, friend, classmate, or colleague to suicide find that sharing openly with fellow suicide loss survivors about what they’ve lived through can help with the healing process. The topic for the February support group will be “The Emotions Salad Bowl.” Participants are invited to bring a salad ingredient to share. Soup will also be provided. Please attend even if you are not able to bring an ingredient to share.

The group is open and appropriate for adult survivors who have lost a loved one to suicide as well as those supporting a survivor. The groups will be held the second Tuesday of each month. The sessions will run from 7-8:30pm. The group will be held at the Evergreen Youth & Family Services Drop In Center at 610 Patriot Dr NW, Bemidji. The support group will be facilitated by adult suicide loss survivors trained in support group facilitation. Please visit http://www.evergreenyfs.org for a map and directions.
