We the Living

A support group for those that have lost loved ones to suicide.

Who we are

We are a peer-based support group for those that have lost loved ones to suicide that meets monthly in Fort Wayne. There are no costs to attend and all discussions are confidential.

Age requirement is 13+ with parent/caregiver (exceptions can be made once a parent/caregiver is a regular attendee and in direct contact with facilitator.)

All facilitators have been trained in YMHFA (Youth Mental Health First Aid), QPR (Question Persuade Refer) and other relevant trainings. We have a licensed K-12 educator on staff as well.
