The loss of a loved one can be very traumatic and particularly so if the loss is by suicide. This 12-week, specially created program is designed to address the complexities of grief recovery in this context.

Approximately 85% of people in the United States will know someone personally who died by suicide in their lifetime. Each person who ends their life leaves behind an estimated six or more “suicide survivors” – people who’ve lost someone they care about deeply and are left grieving and struggling to understand.

The CDC aims to reduce suicide rates to 10.2 suicides per 100,000 population. As of the most recent measurement, Napa County’s rate is 12 suicides per 100,000 people. Locally there were 18 deaths by suicide in 2017.

Collabria Care is committed to helping address the unique struggles suicide survivors face by offering this vital support group. This 12-week group starts on October 1 and continue it through December 17, at Collabria Care, 414 South Jefferson St. Napa.  The sessions are from 3:00 – 4:30 p.m. on Tuesdays. 

Attendees should plan on attending all 12 weeks as each week’s session builds on the content of the previous sessions.
