Phone support for those in mourning
Whether it is for you or for a loved one, our trained professionals are available day or night to listen to you, calm your concerns, and answer your questions.
Immediate support on site
Our trained professionals are available on demand for groups (family, friends, colleagues, etc.) that have been affected by a suicide to help de-escalate the crisis provoked by the event and reduce the contagion effect.
These meetings, whether individual, conjugal or familial, are aimed at individuals affected by the loss (recent or past) of a loved one by suicide. This first step in the follow-up will provide answers to your concerns, help you understand your reactions and assess your needs. A minimum of 4 to 5 one-hour meetings every 3 weeks is usually required to move up to the follow-up stage.
Intended for adults having beforehand attended preparatory meetings, group follow-ups aim to end isolation, promote expression and learning as pertains to daily suffering, recognize and accepts one’s limits on top of finding simple ways of taking care of oneself.
These meetings (maximum of 8 participants per group) last 2 hours and are scheduled every 3 weeks over a period of approximately one year.
Follow-up for children and teens
Children and teenagers suffering from the loss of a loved one inevitably go through the same phases of mourning that adults do. However, they express it differently and at different moments in their lives, which is why they need an individual follow-up adapted to their specific rhythm. Meetings with children (less than 14 years old) are usually about 30 minutes per week, while teenagers get 45-minute follow-up meetings every 2 weeks.
Our trained professionals can also help parents prepare how they will announce the death to their children and can accompany them if needed. Information sessions are also offered to parents to give them the tools needed to deal with their mourning children.
