LOSS SUPPORT GROUP FOR SURVIVORS OF SUICIDES 724-834-6351
Need Help? If you've lost someone to suicide, you are not alone. L.O.S.S. (Loved Ones Stolen by Suicide) is an informal “open” support group. There is no charge and individuals may join at any time and attend as often as needed.The trauma of suicide often brings with it a loss of the sense of safety; survivors often become very protective of themselves and their loved ones. At L.O.S.S. we offer the opportunity for sharing, support, and encouragement for anyone who has experienced the unique and profound grief of losing a loved one to suicide.
Cost: Free Ages: 18 and up
