Free, Drop-in Peer Support Groups


Alternatives to Suicide
Peer Support Groups for Adults

Alternatives to Suicide groups are a confidential space where people who struggle or have struggled with suicidality can openly talk about their experiences with others who have “been there.” In this peer support space, we do not assume you have an illness, do not assess for risk or involuntary intervention, and do not call the police.  While this is an open space to talk about difficult things we’re feeling or thinking about, we actually talk about a variety of things in these groups, struggles and strengths. We also share laughs, talk about cats, eat snacks, and go with whatever’s on our minds.

Facilitated by people with lived experience, these groups are not just for people who are actively suicidal, but for anyone who has experienced suicidality at some point in their life and would benefit from a non-judgmental space to explore their thoughts and emotions with others who are coming with their own honest experiences.  Click here for the adult group FAQ.

To learn more about how these groups are different from typical approaches, read a brief interview with one of the developers of these groups here.

Unity in Community for BIPOC

Unity In Community is a sanctuary of liberation for Black, Indigenous, and people of color. When we find ourselves no longer wanting to continue on, had or having thoughts of suicide, or feeling disconnected, we lean into the practice of liberating ourselves from staying silent. Unity in Community is held by a collective of BIPOC trained facilitators with diversity in lineage and lived experience, to hold space for those needing connection and community. We hold space for witnessing and being witnessed so that we can return, reclaim, remember our roots, along with reclaiming our power.
