Support Groups in Ohio

https://www.compassionatefriends.org  -  This is not a suicide specific group.

https://www.taps.org - This is for military loss and is not suicide specific.

Check to see if your county has existing resources for ongoing support such as, support groups and grief counseling*.

*In regards to grief counseling, you want to look for clinicians that specialize in treating grief, trauma, and loss, and who are versed in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and Trauma-Informed Care. Additionally, clinicians with experience in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing), AMSR (Assessing and Managing Suicide Risk), and/or CAMS (Collaborative Assessment and Management of Suicidality) is helpful.

If there are no specific support groups in your local area, we strongly encourage you to start your own support group.
