Support for Survivors After Suicide

Anyone who has suffered the loss of a friend or loved one through suicide is welcome at HEARTBEAT, a support group for Survivors After Suicide. The Glenwood Springs chapter will meet at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 10.

HEARTBEAT is open to anyone who has been touched by suicide, no matter how long ago. This peer group does not provide or replace therapy; it is a safe place where mutual support can be found with others who share this unique pain. We all survive one heartbeat at a time.

HEARTBEAT meets at the First United Methodist Church in Glenwood Springs. Use the Bethel Chapel entrance of the church located at 824 Cooper Ave.
