DUBOIS – The saying “Time heals all wounds,” is not necessarily true for all survivors of suicide. Time is necessary for healing, but time is not always enough. Shared feelings enrich and lead to growth and healing of those affected by suicide.
S.O.S is a nine-session program, meeting every third Monday of the month, designed to create an open, understanding, non-judgmental, unbiased environment promoting care, love, support and education for the what is and how to live with the effects of suicide.
This forum is directed to those who have lost a loved one to suicide, and offers a safe place to share and discuss the feelings associated with such a loss. This group is targeted to local youth 20 and under.
In a safe and confidential environment built around understanding, relatability and trust, each session will consist of activities and discussions designed to promote acceptance, healing and growth through the discovery and rediscovery of a defined passion and purpose living with suicide.
It is said, “’Those who hurt the most are those who dared to love deepest.’ The success of this program relies solely on those willing to dare to love again by sharing theirs. We dare you,” organizers said.
Meetings will be held the third Monday of every month at 5 p.m. and are free to everyone. Call to register, if you can, or just show up. To register or for more information, you can contact 814-299-7640.
Refreshments will be provided.
