Alaska Police and Fire Chaplains Survivors of Suicide Support Group
  ~ “Survivors” are the family and friends of a loved one who has died by suicide.  Meetings are the first and third Thursdays of each month,  7:00 P.M. – 9:00 P.M.  Please Call before first visit: 907-272-3100.

The support group meetings are designed to support family members and friends of those in our communities that have died by suicide. Often family members and friends have reactions that include, depression, grief, feels of being overwhelmed, abandonment, hurt, sorrow, guilt, anger and many others. There seems to always be one question; “How could my loved one / friend do this?” to him or her self, or to me? After a suicide, it is common to have others consider suicide as their way out of their pain.  Our goal is to help those effected by suicide, come to some kind of relief from the pain; find some level of understanding, and somehow, integrate this loss into their life, and help them gather up the pieces of their life and go on from here. This may take a couple of years, longer for some, and less for others.  If you are interested in having a youth meeting, please contact us 907-272-3100.
