This online free gathering will bring suicide loss survivors together for an hour of sharing and connecting.

After a suicide loss, many survivors feel isolated. Finding sameness and belonging are key ingredients needed to help their journey through bereavement. Feeling supported and with the possibility to create new connections is essential.

In this 75-minute session, you will find a safe place to meet other suicide loss survivors to share challenges and resources, feelings and ideas.

Who is it for?

Anyone who has lost a significant other to suicide and who wants to join others in building a supportive community of survivors.

Attendees will be advised to attend at their discretion, acknowledging that grieving a suicide can be challenging. Attendees will be invited to be mindful of the content of their sharing to ensure everyone’s safety and wellbeing.

The Facilitator

This session is facilitated by Jessica Wolf Ortiz and co-facilitated by a suicide loss survivor. Jessica is the current Bereavement Coordinator at the Crisis Centre of B.C., registered Clinical Counsellor and author of Overcoming Suicide Grief: The Stories of those who stay.

Our Impact The topic and word "suicide" is not so scary after taking a training from the Crisis Centre of BC. I'm grateful to have been here today, and am hopeful that I can help people in the future. safeTALK participant, Agassiz
