EMPACT Survivors of Suicide

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.

20th Annual Arizona Survivors of Suicide Conference Day

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.
