Surviving After Suicide - 10 Week Class | The Helpline Center

  • Helpline Center 1000 N. West Ave Ste 310 Sioux Falls, SD (map)

The Surviving After Suicide Class is designed to help survivors of suicide express and understand the troubling grief, stigma, sadness and pain they feel in a safe and supportive environment. The Helpline Center is pleased to offer this ten week education/support class for survivors of suicide. Each class focuses on a unique aspect of survivor grief and is followed by a support session allowing members to share their stories. The supportive mourning process is guided by participant needs and a handbook organized chronologically to follow the days, weeks, and months after a suicide loss. It includes straightforward information about psychiatric disorders, when to seek professional help, and practical strategies for coping and healing.

The classes are held three times a year usually in January, April and September. The SAS Class is held on Tuesday evenings from 7:00-8:30pm for 10 consecutive weeks at the Helpline Center. Registration is required and we ask that you commit to attending all of the 10 sessions. There is no charge for the class, but pre-registration is required along with a commitment to attempt to attend all ten sessions. This class is for adults ages 18 plus. Registration is required.
