There is ALWAYS HOPE and HELP

YOU ARE NOT ALONE...

The grief that follows suicide is extremely difficult. It is magnified, complicated and isolating. The survivor must grieve not only the loss, but also the choice that caused the loss. HEARTBEAT is a support group that provides support toward resolving your feelings of: responsibility, guilt, self-doubt, failure, rejection, shame, anger, hostility, fears, and your search for answers. HEARTBEAT helps survivors absorb the impact of their loss, and to offer the comfort of empathetic understanding and acceptance. HEARTBEAT recognizes that great strength and healing are gained by using one’s own painful growth in support of others. HEARTBEAT cannot take away your pain, but we can share it in an atmosphere of love, acceptance and reinforcement and direct you toward healing through this very complicated grieving process.

Because the grief that follows suicide is different from grief resulting from other causes of death, there is seldom the understanding, reinforcement, and guidance for growth toward healthy reconciliation and adjustment through these compounded grief dynamics. Everyone grieves differently but one common factor in the grief process is the need to be heard. Telling the story is a healing experience. Listening can be the best gift you give to anyone that is navigating through grief.
