Narrative

Samaritans’ SafePlace meetings are open groups of caring people who have lost a loved one to suicide. Samaritans trains volunteer facilitators who are also survivors of suicide loss. SafePlace is not a professional therapy group, but rather a peer support group providing a forum for exploring feelings often not understood by others. It offers a chance to share helpful resources, and to give and get support through the long process of grieving. Meetings are free, ongoing, and drop-in. There is no registration necessary.
