Mission Statement

Franklin County Local Outreach to Suicide Survivors (LOSS) exists to be an instillation of hope by providing resources, understanding and support to those bereaved by suicide.

Description

Franklin County Local Outerach to Suicide Survivors (LOSS) is a survivor-led organization.

Trained volunteers - many of whom are survivors of a suicide loss - provide immediate assistance to the newly bereaved to help them cope with the trauma of their loss.

LOSS trained volunteers can also meet with survivors in weeks and months to come. Suicide grief can be different from other types of losses. Often times suicide survivors feel isolated - like no one understands their grief. Connecting with someone who has a similar lived experience can be encouraging and provide a sense of "normalcy" in a very difficult, uncomfortable journey.

LOSS provides follow-up contact with survivors by sending cards, free resource materials and providing connections to local services and support groups in the Franklin County community.
