Grieving a Loss to Suicide

For those bereaved by a loss to suicide, the most helpful support may come from someone who has been through a similar loss. Our Grief Support Services provide peer support to people who have lost loved ones to suicide, also known as suicide loss survivors. These services focus on nonjudgmental listening and compassion, and are free of charge.

Fill out the form below to sign up for our grief support services — SafePlace Meetings or Survivor to Survivor Visits — and get other helpful resources for grieving a suicide loss.

Samaritans will maintain your confidentiality. Please do not put down anyone’s contact information other than your own. If you’re looking for resources on behalf of someone else, we’re happy to talk with you about what resources are available and how to share them with others.

This form is not monitored for crisis response. You can call or text our Crisis Helpline anytime day or night, for any reason, at 988.
