Life After Suicide Loss (LASL) Group is a 9-week, closed suicide bereavement group available to adults who have lost a loved one to suicide. The group is facilitated by clinicians, and includes an optional monthly support group called LASL Side-by-Side, which offers ongoing peer support. This nine-week program is offered twice a year (spring and fall) and registration is required. To register for the next Life After Suicide Loss program or to learn more about this and other support options for those impacted by suicide loss, please call us at 902-628-3669 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
“This program is exactly what is needed for survivors of suicide loss. In the beginning we have the support and guidance of trained professionals. Then afterward, through monthly group meetings, we have seasoned survivors following up with us. We can also access help from the LASL group leaders and from CMHA as needed.”
- A toolkit for people who have lost someone to suicide was designed by the Mental Health Commission of Canada.
- ‘Supporting Children and Youth to Grieve After Suicide Loss: A Resource Kit’ is available to Island families impacted by suicide loss. It is designed to help guide and support parents and caregivers to have important conversations about suicide loss with children and youth who have experienced the death of a loved one to suicide. The kit is available in two formats; in hard-copy and virtually through our website so the materials can be printed off, as needed. To learn more about the kit and how to access the materials, please click here.
- Multi-media resources relating to suicide grief are available for loan through CMHA’s local Resource Libraries.
