Kevin’s Song, a local nonprofit dedicated to raising awareness about the causes of suicide and preventive measures, launches a support group for survivors of suicide loss Wednesday, Feb. 6, at Grosse Pointe Memorial Church, 16 Lakeshore, Grosse Pointe Farms. The support group will provide peer-based, non-clinical support for those impacted by suicide loss. It meets the first and third Wednesdays of each month from 7 to 8:30 p.m. There is no charge to attend.
“We recognize the complex grief that accompanies losing someone in your life to suicide and the opportunity to share these feelings with those who have experienced the same type of loss can be incredibly helpful and healing,” said Gail Urso, Kevin’s Song co-founder and vice president. “As suicide continues to impact our lives, the Kevin’s Song Board of Directors saw the need to offer this kind of support to anyone who has lost a loved one, friend or colleague to suicide. We are pleased to be able to offer this support group to Grosse Pointe and all of its surrounding neighbors as there are not many options like this currently in our area.”
Kevin’s Song is a local nonprofit dedicated to empowering communities to prevent suicide and offer hope and healing to survivors. Anyone who has lost a loved one, friend or colleague to suicide is welcome.
