Event description
7-week bereavement workshop for teen suicide loss survivors to receive peer support and education about surviving after a suicide.

About this event

**Please note: This workshop will be held via Zoom and teens will need to use both their camera and microphone to attend.**

The stigma that your loved one has taken their own life can leave you feeling alone and isolated. You may find yourself in a struggle to survive and then move forward. Find hope in connecting with peers who understand. This workshop will focus on issues and experiences unique to suicide.

Teens Overcoming Grief After Suicide is a seven-week workshop for teens who have experienced the death of a loved one by suicide. This workshop is designed to provide youth 13-19 with information about the grieving process and to provide a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental space to share their experiences and feelings with others who share a similar loss.

Teens Overcoming Grief After Suicide will meet from 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm MT on Friday nights October 1, 2021 - November 12, 2021, via Zoom. 

Pre-registration is required as group size is limited to 8, and attendance at all meetings is requested to facilitate group and individual healing. Cost:  $75.00 for the seven-week series.

Please contact Charlotte Tankersley at charlotte@hope-group.org or (720) 745-9252 with any questions before registering.
