REGISTER HERE FOR SOSL GROUP

RVA=Richmond, VA, SOSL=Survivors of Suicide Loss

The meeting reminder sign-up list is here. 

Shirley Ramsey (who started the Virginia Chapter of AFSP) started this group and I, Anne Moss Rogers, am helping her co-facilitate. The website is here. 

This is a free support group for anyone who has lost a family member, friend or loved one to suicide. This is a peer-facilitated setting, meaning no mental health professionals guide the group. The goal for the group is to provide a safe grieving environment, free of stigma and judgment. It is a forum to connect with community members suffering from a suicide loss as a place to receive emotional support.

We meet monthly on the Third Thursday of each month from 6:30pm – 8pm at Pusey House at First Baptist Church

Street parking and parking available in Mulberry Street parking lot. Or on the side streets in front of Pusey House.

I am an emotionally naked TEDx speaker, and author of the Book, Diary of a Broken Mind and co-author with Kim O'Brien PhD, LICSW of Emotionally Naked: A Teacher's Guide to Preventing Suicide and Recognizing Students at Risk. I raised two boys, Richard and Charles, and lost my younger son, Charles to substance use disorder and suicide on June 5, 2015. I help people foster a culture of connection to prevent suicide, reduce substance misuse and find life after loss. My motivational, training and workshop topics include suicide prevention, addiction, mental illness, coping strategies/resilience, and grief. As talented and funny as Charles was, letting other people know they matter was his greatest gift. And now the legacy I try and carry forward in my son's memory. Professional Speaker Website. Trained in ASIST and trainer for the evidence-based 4-hour training for everyone called safeTALK.
