Survivors Of Loved Ones to Suicide (SOLOS) is a unique suicide support system created for individuals who have lost a loved one to suicide. We are reaching out to those who are on a JOURNEY called grief. We offer a peer based support system unlike any other support system available which is a safe place to come together to share, to discuss, to vent, to learn, and to not feel alone. We offer these individuals both online and face-to-face grief support groups and continue to grow both throughout the United States and the World. As a result, these survivors feel secure and know they are never alone on this journey through suicide grief.
Survivors Of Loved Ones to Suicide, Inc.
SOLOS Survivors Of Loved Ones to Suicide is a labor of love that was envisioned after our founder, Jennifer Cagle-Huffman, lost her precious mother to suicide in 1998.Our focus and goal at SOLOS is to help others on this very unique journey know that they are not alone. SOLOS is completely peer based, this means every member (including our volunteers) have been through the loss of a loved one to suicide. Research has proven that talking about your loss to other peers is very healing, be it in a face-to-face setting or an online forum. According to the CDC there were 41,000 deaths due to suicide in the USA alone in 2014. Through research they tell us that 115 people are directly affected when a suicide loss occurs. SOLOS hopes to reach out and support as many of those suicide loss survivors as we can through our peer based online and local suicide grief support resources. Suicide does not discriminate based on race, religion, or social status. These are our loved ones. We should not feel we are discriminated against because of the way they have died, we need to talk about it. Please know if you and your family have been touched by this very unique and tragic loss, called suicide loss, you are not alone on this journey! At SOLOS we are here to support you! We care.
You are not alone!
