Survivors of Suicide (SOS) Advocacy
Let the healing begin. SOS Advocacy at HelpLine provides help and support to those grieving a suicide with their loss, pain, questions and journey to healing. Survivors can receive one on one guidance to help find local SOS groups, counseling, reading materials and other resources to cope with their loss.
For more information on SOS advocacy, contact Michelle Price through our 24/7 hotline at 2-1-1 or 1.800.684.2324 (Delaware: 740.369.3316 or Morrow: 419.947.2520). CLICK HERE for the SOS Library Book List (updated Dec. 2013). Download pdf information HERE.
The Delaware Suicide Prevention Coalition has collected numerous financial, emotional, and community resources to provide a healing Survivors of Suicide Resource Folder for those individuals in Delaware or Morrow Counties who have lost a loved one to suicide. Please look through the available resources and contact the Survivors of Suicide Advocate with questions or requests.
