Suicide Survivors Grief Group

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 goal is to share experiences and ways of managing the devastating grief you’re living with in a safe, upbeat environment unlike what most people think of when they hear the words “support group”.

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. (See directions below.)

FMI:  207 713 0674 (you’ll probably have to leave a message).

Other Info:

Our groups are free & confidential, run by a loss survivor/social worker, and are non-religious in nature.

To Find Us: From Main Street in Lewiston, turn onto Park Street and park in the first parking space on the street that’s available. The meters are free after 5:00 pm and on weekends.

You’ll see Heritage Books & Maps at the very beginning – 5 Park Street. (The light should be on inside to help you see it, although the shop will not be open).

Facing Heritage Books & Maps, you’ll see an alley to its left. A silver Jeep will probably be parked in that alley, near our entrance door on that side of the building.
Please enter through that back door off the alley. (You may hear a dog barking inside; she won’t bother you, but she is loud until she settles down.) There will be a sign posted on the door.

This group, as well as our Saturday evening group for those living with chronic psychic/emotional and/or physical pain combined with hopelessness, is confidential and run by a loss survivor/social worker.

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

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 physical pain and other demons no one else could see.  I thought he was the strongest man in the world, and perhaps he was, but tragically, the pain and 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.
