Wake Forest Survivors of Suicide

Support groups for those who have lost a loved one to suicide.

S.O.S. Ground Rules

  • Please come on time.
  • Information shared in the group should be kept strictly confidential.
  • Be respectful of others grief. Don't interrupt.
  • Share the time, don't monopolize.
  • We learn best by hearing experiences of others, not by giving advice. It's best to say what you did in a similar situation, rather than what someone else should do.
  • If you want to learn more about something, ask questions. Please don't put anyone on trial or try to point out faults in someone else's thinking or actions.
  • Respect the opinions of others. What doesn't work for you may work for someone else.
  • Share your experience, even if you were unhappy about how it turned out. It might help someone else avoid repeating your mistakes.
  • Be open to help from people other than the leader.
  • It's okay to be silent. You are not required to speak.
  • Give yourself a chance. If the first meeting doesn't seem to help, please come back a few more times before deciding it's not for you.

We honor your tears with no judgement.

Meetings are a safe place to be and express real feelings.
