SOS Support Groups in Georgia

 

SOS Groups are often run by survivors and held at donated space. The times, days, and locations from time to time may move or change. Before attending a meeting, please call the facilitator and confirm the details. The Facilitators will be glad to know that they can expect you at their upcoming meeting. There is no charge for these meetings. (no matter where a meeting is held, the main listing of SOS Groups are not faith based or program oriented. Those types of groups are listed on the Faith Community Relationships page. The meetings are support for healing for anyone of any belief who has lost a loved one to suicide.)

These are the groups that are specifically SOS Groups and support survivors of suicide and sometimes-general bereavement as well.

 

There are many other groups in our state that are for general bereavement or specific groups like "faith based or closed groups".

You can find many of them on www.gspin.org, OTHER GRIEF GROUPS.

If you have a problem reaching any facilitator above, please check on www.gspin.org and click survivor then SOS Groups for up to date info or contact Sheri at georgiasurvivors@gmail.com

This is not a Crisis Line or Crisis Site.  If you have an emergency call 911 or the Georgia Crisis and Access Line at 1-800-715-4225
