About Us


Our Mission

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

Survivors of Suicide support group

When someone you love dies by suicide, we offer a safe and comfortable place to meet others who understand, can offer support, strength, and hope.  Suicide can leave you feeling 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, trainings, resources, and referrals.

The  Survivors of Suicide support group meets the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month from 7:00 p.m. – 8:30p.m.

State Street United Methodist Church Saginaw MI 48602. Non-denominational  Corner of State street and Mackinaw across from Little Caesars Pizza. Enter door and lot on State street side. The support group is offered free of charge. For more information  call (989) 781-5260.
