Grief comes in many forms. There’s no one size fits all. Plymouth County has experienced many suicide deaths by suicide in the last three years leaving several families, friends, schools and local groups in need of grief support.
A grief support program for those who have lost someone to suicide will start on Tuesday, January 29at the First Congregational Community Center 144 Front St. Marion from 6:30 to 8 pm, Kitchen Table Conversations will continue the fourth Tuesday of each month.
This is not clinical. It’s a peer-to-peer gathering open to anyone ages 19 and over who has been impacted by the loss of a loved one, friend, co-worker, etc., who died by suicide. If you are uncomfortable coming alone, bring a friend. The doors are open to anyone in need of suicide related grief support.
These gatherings will be coordinated by certified facilitators under the auspices of the Plymouth County Suicide Prevention Coalition and the Bristol County Regional Coalition for Suicide Prevention. There are currently Kitchen Table Conversations also taking place in Taunton, Attleboro and Fall River.
These grief support programs are funded, in part by, the Department of Public Health’s Suicide Prevention Program and through funds raised at our fundraising event Dancing with the Dignitaries which was supported by the Tri-Town area.
