Aftercare

Support Group

When someone you love dies by suicide, you may need a place to share your feelings, thoughts, and experiences. For some, part of healing is in meeting 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, resources, speakers, and referrals. The Barb Smith Suicide Resource and Response Network support group meets the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month from 7:00 p.m. - 8:30pm. Great Lakes Bay Health Centers, 3023 Davenport Ave, Saginaw MI 48602. The support group is offered free of charge. For more information, contact us at 989-781-5260 or email barb.smith@suicideresourceandresponse.net

The LOSS Team is a trained team of caring individuals who experienced losing someone to suicide. They meet the newly bereaved and walk with them through the early days of their grief, offering resources and hope.
The team was trained in 2018 by Dr. Frank Campbell.
