Support for family who lost a loved one via suicide


#1

hi!

is there a Catholic group that can assist with family members left by someone who committed suicide? a family friend has a son who committed suicide years ago and the daughter has gradually been withdrawing herself from society since. i'm wondering if there is a group they can call who can help them.

this is in the US

website URLs and/or phone numbers to such organizations are welcome (hopefully its not against forum rules?)

Tell your friend to call their Archdiocese for family services. Meanwhile, you might want to call your own diocese to get some tips on how to help them. Yours is: rcav.org/
