HEALING CONVERSATIONS - AFSP

AMERICAN FOUNDATION FOR SUICIDE PREVENTION #62918529


American Foundation for Suicide Prevention offers Personal Support for Survivors of Suicide Loss

Healing Conversations – formerly known as the Survivor Outreach Program – gives those who have lost someone to suicide the opportunity to talk with our experienced volunteers. These AFSP volunteers, who are themselves survivors of suicide loss, offer understanding and guidance in the weeks and months following a suicide death.

Available in person, on the phone, or by video chat, volunteers are familiar with the isolation that so often accompanies death of this kind, and can show suicide loss survivors a way forward into a world of support, by creating an opportunity for the newly bereaved to speak openly with, and ask questions of, someone who has been there too.

When someone contacts AFSP to request a conversation, AFSP will ask them some questions about their loss, so that they may match them with a suitable volunteer who has experienced a similar loss. Their peer support volunteer wil… [read more]
