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 of HEARTBEAT – Support for Survivors After Suicide – will meet at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 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.

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

For more information, call Pam Szédelyi at (970) 945-1398 or email at pamsz@sopris.net.
