Resources for suicide loss

Hands Julie and Emma_Fotor

Sadly, we’ve heard that two Jackson County teens have taken their own lives in separate incidences this past week.  We have resources to help in the aftermath of such tragic losses.  We also wish to share what we can about how teens grieve — whole schools have been affected.  Our hearts go out to everyone involved.

“Life After Loss” Support Group

Has it been two years or more since you lost your spouse or life partner?

If so, consider being part of WinterSpring’s new “Life After Loss” group, specially designed for those who have moved beyond the initial stages of grief but are still feeling the impact of their beloved’s absence in their everyday lives…  This group offers a chance to connect with others who have also traveled some distance down the road of “the new normal.”
