People who have attempted suicide or lost a loved one to suicide often find comfort and healing in our specialized support groups, facilitated by a licensed clinician and a peer.
Survivors of Suicide Attempts Support Group
This innovative support group offers a safe, nonjudgmental place for survivors to talk about what led them to attempt suicide and the impact on their lives. Survivors learn coping skills to more effectively manage suicidal thoughts, and create safety plans to keep themselves safe during a crisis to help reduce triggers. The group is facilitated by a clinician and a peer (survivor of a suicide attempt).

“Suicide is a forbidden subject, but at Didi Hirsch, I found a place where I could talk about what I was going through with people who knew firsthand what I was saying. And that made a real difference.”
