Supporting Survivors of Suicide Loss

Free Zoom Workshop Presented by Roots & Roads Community Hospice Foundation

At some point, you may encounter a friend, co-worker, neighbor, client, or someone in your community who is grieving the loss of a person who died by suicide. You may feel hesitant to reach out and provide support because you're not sure what to do and are afraid of saying the wrong thing. However, it's important to know that these feelings are natural, especially when we have little or no experience with such situations. As a result of the tremendous societal and global stigma surrounding suicide, this issue becomes exceedingly complex.

In this workshop, facilitated By Kris Masalsky Goguen & Carol S. Miller of The Learning Community For Loss, Grief And Transition (TLC), we will explore:

  • Your Individual Beliefs & Attitudes About Suicide
  • The Importance Of The Words We Use
  • How Death By Suicide Creates More Complex Grief
  • Helpful Ways You Can Learn To Support Those Grieving

Available Workshop Dates

All 2024 sessions will take place on Zoom from 10:00 am to Noon (MST) and will cover the same content.

We are honored to be presenting this workshop thanks to the funding provided by The Legacy Foundation of Southeast Arizona, an Arizona Charitable organization whose philanthropic mission is to promote population health and community wellness throughout Southeast Arizona.
