Did you know that there is a

Grief Support Group in Wenatchee for

Survivors of Suicide Loss?

If you are someone who has been touched by the loss of a loved one to suicide, this group may be a place for you to come together with others who have experienced a similar, painful loss. It could be a place for you to begin to know that hope and healing are possible.

This group is sponsored by The Compassionate Friends of Wenatchee Valley (whose primary focus is supporting families after the loss of a child). The Compassionate Friends has seen a need in this community for a group that can support the unique grief process of those who have lost a child, loved one, or friend to suicide, no matter whether the death was recent or many years ago. It is a peer support group where everyone is considered to be a “wounded healer.” Often it is in helping others that we find our own healing. All that is asked of participants is that they come with an openness to share and to listen. Stories will all differ but there is a camaraderie that encourages a special bond. All who find themselves on this grief journey are invited to come and see what it is all about. You will be warmly welcomed!

(For more information, please call Linda at 509-888-2742 or Carol at 509-860-3620)

The group meets on the second Tuesday of each month at Grace Lutheran Church in Wenatchee (1408 Washington Street) from 7:00-8:30 P.M. It is a time to:

  • Share your story

  • Support others by listening

  • Gain insights and wisdom from others

  • Learn helpful information about healing from suicide loss

  • Create space for emotion, memories and grief for the loss of a future for your loved one

Sometimes there is a focus on a particular subject for discussion. Over the past few months some of the themes have been: guilt, coping, acceptance, moving forward, hope, memory and legacy.

 

In 2018 the meeting dates are:
  • April 10

  • May 8

  • June 12
