I sit here with a friend who's partner committed suicide 4 months ago. She started a search long ago and we have continued it this afternoon...looking for grief support for those who know someone who has committed suicide.
We cannot find one. And the one that was in Christchurch stopped back in 2005.
We are wondering...are there others? Are you (somehow finding this post) looking for a group like this? Know someone who needs a group like this?
We would be happy to make room and start a group like this. It would be comforting...a place to share your story and be understood.
Please email me - jamieussherATgmail.com for more details.
We have begun a program called WAVES - suicide bereavement group (from Skylight in Wellington). We started groups in 2013 and will continue into 2014. Please email me for more information and I can send you a flyer - jamieussher @ gmail .com or leave a comment below with your information.
