Warrior Project Support Groups – Suicide Survivors Grief Group and Living with Psychic/Physical Pain Group

warrior-project-support-group

Suicide Survivors Grief Group – For those grieving the loss of a loved one by suicide.  This is a non-religious based group facilitated by a loss survivor/social worker.

We welcome those who have recently lost someone to suicide, or those who are still feeling the impact even years later.   It is a place to share your grief and learn how to live again by learning from others who have been through a similar experience.

The Suicide Survivors Grief Group meets most Tuesdays from 6:00 pm-7:30 pm at The Warrior Project, 189 B Main Street, Lewiston  ME 04240.

FMI: 207-713-0674.

Living with Psychic/Physical Pain Group – For those who are sick & tired of feeling sick & tired of their emotional and/or physical pain.  This is a  non-religious based group facilitated by a loss survivor/social worker.

A typical member would be someone like my husband, someone who is considered “high functioning”, people who not part of the State’s mental health system, and about whom nearly everyone would say “I had no idea s/he was in such a world of hurt”.

We meet most Saturdays from 6:00-7:30 pm at The Warrior Project,  189 B Main Street, Lewiston ME 04240.

 

Other Info

Both groups are confidential and run by a loss survivor/social worker.  Enter through the back door off the alley on the Park Street side.  FMI:  Call 207 713 0674 and leave a message or call Linda at 207 740 2247 (you’ll probably leave a message here as well).

****************

In memory of my beloved husband John Kelly Snyder… 20 Sept 1956 – 21 Oct 2016.

The Warrior Project is a warm, welcoming drop-in center for those living with extreme emotional and/or physical pain coupled with hopelessness, and a resource for families and friends fearing for the life of, or grieving the loss of, the person they love so much.

My Johnny was a true warrior, fighting demons no one else could see.  I thought he was the strongest man in the world, and perhaps he was, but tragically, the demons got the better of him.

The name of this project is in no way intended to be reflective of, or piggy back off, Wounded Warriors which serves those wounded after September 11, 20o1.  Like too many others, John was a warrior long before then.

Fair winds and following seas, Husband.
