Community: Hampton Roads Survivors of Suicide Support Group



Determined to beat the heat, I frequently visit my favorite water ice shop.  On my way back one day, I saw a huge sign that read: Out of Darkness, www.sos-walk.org,  September 12th, 2015. This walk is an American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) fundraising event sponsored by The Hampton Roads Survivors of Suicide Support Group.  The funds that are raised goes toward suicide prevention, education programs and research.  Beyond the walk, the goal of the Hampton Roads S.O.S. is to help those who have lost a loved one to suicide cope with and heal from their loss.  This is an excellent resource, a gem to the mental health community in Hampton Roads Virginia as these survivors need just as much support as those living with mental illness and thoughts of suicide.

For more information or to register for services please contact the office of Chris Gilchrist, L.C.S.W. at 757-483-5111.
