Suicide Attempt Survivors Group

Have you survived a suicide attempt?

Over 1 million Americans attempt suicide each year. 90% of those will go on to live out the natural course of their lives. Surviving a suicide attempt can be a very lonely experience. NAMI-NYC is starting a new group to help support attempt survivors.

Our Suicide Attempt Survivor Group offers a safe, non-judgmental place for people to talk about their feelings and the impact that attempt had on their lives as well as their family and friends. The group provides an opportunity for its participants to connect with peers who share similar experiences. By connecting with others who understand, the peer support group experience can help you overcome some of the self-blame, guilt, shame, and isolation around surviving a suicide attempt.

Group members must be 13 months past their suicide attempt to be considered. If your attempt was more recent and you need immediate support, please call The Samaritans at 212-673-3000.

This is a closed group, and participants must be 18 years of age or older. The group is limited to a maximum of 10 people, and will run for 8 weeks.
