NAMI is now offering 2 Suicide Support Groups
NAMI Surviving Suicide Loss Support Group is a peer-led support group for family members, caregivers and loved ones of individuals who lost their lives to suicide. We aim to provide a safe, confidential environment in which bereaved people can share their experiences and feelings, and gain support from each other.
NAMI’s Support Groups are unique because they follow a structured model to ensure you and others in the group have an opportunity to be heard and to get what you need:
Date/Time: 3rd Wednesday of each month, 6:30pm -8:00pm
Location: Dunedin Community Center, Aberdeen Room, 1920 Pinehurst Rd, Dunedin, FL.
NAMI Suicide Support Group is designed to support those that have been affected by suicide in any capacity, such as working through suicidal thoughts, feelings and/or behaviors.
Date/Time: 1st & 3rd Tuesday of each month, 7:00pm
Location: PEMHS (Administration Building/Activity Room), 11254 58th Street, Pinellas Park, FL 33782
