Thank you for visiting the Wake Forest Survivors of Suicide support group web site. We hope you'll find comfort by attending one of our support groups which meets monthly in Wake Forest and North Raleigh in central North Carolina.
This group is for those who have lost someone to suicide. It could be a brother, sister, mother, father, son, daughter, friend - anyone who has chosen to end their life and you are having difficulties handling the loss.
Do not think you're not a survivor because you're not related to the person. Losing someone to suicide can be heart wrenching for anyone who knew the person.
The Wake Forest group meets the 2nd Thursday monthly.
The North Raleigh group meets the 4th Monday monthly.
Wake Forest meetings start at 7:00 pm and end at 8:30 pm.
North Raleigh meetings start at 7:00 pm and end at 8:30 pm.

Wake Forest Survivors of Suicide is now part of The Shore Grief Center, a nonprofit created to help all ages (6 and up) who are navigating the sea of grief by any type of loss. Read more about The Shore. We welcome your donations so we can start some wonderful programs in the future!Our 2nd Walk Along the Shore is coming up soon! It will be held Saturday, 11/1/2014 in downtown Wake Forest. We held a suicide awareness walk for another organization for 5 years but since we are our own nonprofit now, we hold one for the Shore so we can continue to grow and help others with their grief. Join us this year as we walk to remember! Registration opens September 1!
Save the Teens Grief Group is for teens ages 13-18. Once again, any death is acceptable for attendance. **these groups can be held in middle and high schools upon approval from the school!
