How we help

Saginaw Survivors of Suicide offers group support and understanding for those who have lost a loved one to suicide and fosters suicide awareness and education in the community, so future acts may be prevented.


When someone you love dies by suicide, you need a place to share your feelings, thoughts, and experiences.  Part of healing is in meeting others who understand, can offer support, strength, and hope.  Suicide can make you feel alone and isolated. Just knowing that there are others who have survived this traumatic experience can be comforting.  In addition to support, our group offers the community a lending library, resources, and referrals.

The Saginaw Survivors of Suicide support group meets the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month from 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. at Child and Family Service of Saginaw, 2806 Davenport, Saginaw MI 48602. The support group is offered free of charge.
