Survivors of Suicide (SOS)

In January of 2019 the Jefferson County Health Department (JCHD) and Provident Counseling launched an adult Survivors of Suicide (SOS) group at the St. Andrews United Methodist Church in De Soto.  Survivors of a loss to suicide are left with grief that is complex, intense and difficult for others to understand.  Group meetings have been impactful to members in attendance; providing support, learning and healing. 

The group is a peer-led support group and does not involve formal therapy.  A licensed clinician does attend and can provide immediate suicide risk assessment if needed.
