Support Group Updates – June 1, 2020
Due to the breakout of COVID-19, many churches and community centers continue to be closed, to reduce the spread of the virus and to protect vulnerable populations. As a result, many of our statewide support groups temporarily will remain canceled until these sites are open once again.
At this time, the only in-person groups that will be open to the community include the following:
TEMPE SOS GROUP
|WEST VALLEY SOS GROUP
2nd and 4th Tuesday
7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
EMPACT-SPC Glendale Office
4425 W. Olive, Suite 194, Glendale
PHOENIX / SCOTTSDALE SOS GROUP
Virtual SOS Groups Are Being Held Monthly!
EMPACT-SPC will be starting its first online support group on May 19th.
If you are interested in participating in avirtual support group, you must first register for the group. Please complete the Registration Form (see link below) and return it to Sandra.McNally@lafrontera-empact.org
You will receive a confirmation email within 48 hours of submission, which will include the link and password to the online SOS group.
If you have any questions or are in need of additional support, please call 480-784-1514, ext. 1108.
(Another online resource is Alliance of Hope, an online organization which helps Survivors of Suicide: https://allianceofhope.org/)
Survivors of Suicide (SOS), a service of EMPACT-Suicide Prevention Center, is a support program for those whose common bond is the loss of a loved one to suicide. The program allows members to have the emotional support of others who have shared the trauma of this event. The focus of the program is on emotional healing and survival.
Due to the increasing COVID numbers in Arizona, we have decided to postpone the SOS Conference until we can gather safely together. Please check back in the Fall for a new conference date.
