For those who have lost a loved one by suicide
We are the “survivors”.

We are the families and friends of suicide victims who are left behind to make sense of the tragedy.

  • Located at the Avon Free Public Library, the suicide “survivors” support group provides a safe place for those grieving to share their experiences with others who have suffered a similar loss.
  • Meetings are the 2nd Monday of each month.
  • Please contact the Peer Facilitator by phone or email prior to your first meeting.
  • Phone: 860-655-1562 or send email
