Survivor Support Services

The Suicide Prevention Center provides several programs for those who have had a loved one die by suicide and those affected by a suicide attempt. Grieving takes time and we are here to help. You are not alone.
 
After Suicide Support Group provides a safe place to connect and share with others who are coping with the sudden loss of a loved one who died by suicide. The group usually meets on the last Tuesday of the month but check with the facilitator by calling 574-314.5426 or emailing http://bgulbranson@uhs-in.org to confirm the meeting date and time. 

Local Outreach to Survivors of a Suicide (LOSS) team is available to meet with survivors in the days and weeks following the death of a loved one to suicide. We provide support and information on local resources. Call 574-314-5426.  


Community Awareness Programs 

The Suicide Prevention Center organizes several events to raise awareness of suicide prevention and to eradicate the silence that often surrounds suicide.
 
Race to Save Lives is a 5K, 10K and Walk of Hope event which raises awareness and much needed financial support  for suicide prevention programs. This event takes place in November.
 
Paint the Town Yellow is a 5K Run/Walk to raise funds and awareness to prevent suicide. Proceeds benefit youth suicide prevention education in our local schools. Please join us at Seitz Park, May18 from 5:30 pm to 8 pm.
 
For more information on these programs, please go to our events page.
 

If you are in crisis, call the National Lifeline 24/7.  

 

The Suicide Prevention Center does not provide direct services.
