Survivors of Suicide Bereavement Support Group
Sponsor/Parent Agency:Long Island Survivors of Suicide
Address:181-34 Aberdeen Road Jamaica NY 11432
World Wide Web: http://lisos.org
The support group meets on a monthly basis at Temple Emanuel-New Hyde Park, 3315 Hillside Ave., New Hyde Park, NY 11030. Although meetings take place in a religious institution it is important to recognize that our group is non-sectarian and non-denominational. Everyone is welcome: members of any faith, those claiming no religious affiliations, and people of all racial and cultural affiliations. There are no socio-economic restrictions for membership. Membership base will consist of survivors of suicide i.e. those who lost loved ones to suicide, those who lost a child, parent, spouse or partner, sibling, other relative or friend to suicide. Suicide cuts across most boundaries of class, professions and educational differences and we have among our ranks many professionals and laypeople, all sharing the common interest in how we survive after suicide loss. Suicide survivors who not only have lost someone to suicide but also struggle with their own depression and/or prior history of suicidality are also welcome. We also will be pleased to welcome any other survivors of traumatic deaths of loved ones. We clearly identify ourselves as a self-help group of laypersons and do not profess any professional expertise in the treatment of mental illnesses.
