Samaritans’ version of Suicide Prevention 101 is tailored to the general adult population. It serves as a great starting point for any person to get a feel for Samaritans as an organization, the services the organization provides, and for the prevention work we offer the public. Learn how to support someone you think may be struggling.
Samaritans’ SafePlace meetings are open groups of caring people who have lost a loved one to suicide. SafePlace peer support groups for suicide loss survivors are facilitated by trained volunteers who have also lost a loved one to suicide. SafePlace is not a professional therapy group, but rather a peer support group providing a forum for exploring feelings often not understood by others. It offers a chance to share helpful resources, and to give and get support through the long process of grieving. Meetings are free but registration is necessary.
