How We Help
Barb Smith Suicide Resource and Response Network 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.
Call the NSPL at 800-273-TALK (8255) or text 741741
When someone you love dies by suicide, we offer a safe place to meet with 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, trainings, resources, and referrals.
The Barb Smith Suicide Resource and Response Network support group meets the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month from 7 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. at State Street United Methodist Church, 3617 Mackinaw Street, Saginaw, MI. (Use Jazzercise entrance.) Non-Denominational. The support group is offered free of charge.
