Co-facilitator of RVA’s Survivors of Suicide Loss support group. (RVA=Richmond, VA)
Shirley Ramsey (who started the Virginia Chapter of AFSP) started this group and I’m helping her co-facilitate as the previous co-facilitator had to step down due to pressing family matters.
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 6:30 pm – 8 pm at
Pusey House at First Baptist Church
Street parking and parking available in Mulberry Street parking lot.
