Welcome to the Lounge for the
Newly Bereaved.
Parents who have lost a child to suicide.

Thank you for waiting as we took a break to allow all the new families to connect in a deeper level.  

The Lounge will be opening its doors starting July 1, 2024. At this time I welcome you to fill out the form to be put in the waitlist.  I will be contacting you for a brief conversation about your loss.

 

If you are struggling and are having suicidal thoughts, please dial 988. If you can't wait for this support group, please click here for Suicide Loss Support Groups & Resources.

We are creating this new space to support newly bereaved parents who have lost a child to suicide to connect.  This new world you have entered is filled with so much pain, and really hard feelings.  The idea is to support you in the very early period after your loss.  A check in and connection to let you know that you are not alone.

Most support groups meet at designated times only with a lead facilitator. The Lounge started with a vision of “what if?” What if we could have a space that is peer-to-peer, where anyone could use the zoom lounge to support another community member? A space where we could meet at different times? A space where we can get support from one another.  A space where we can go deeper into the questions we are exploring? 

Our group meets regularly twice a week for continuity and connection. But if individuals are struggling, we meet off-times as well. And we extend our meetings for up to two hours if participants want. 

 

With that idea in mind, I am hoping that this space can grow and that each of you can become contributors in sharing the things that are important for you - a way to learn together as we help one another navigate this new world.

Please note that The Lounge is specific to birth parents and parents who have legally adopted their child. If you need other spaces for support go to Suicide Loss Support Groups & Resources.
