  1. Suicide survivors groups : Results of a survey.

    Article - En anglais

    Little is known about the nature of suicide survivors groups.

    Survey responses by 149 U.S. and Canadian groups are characterized as follows :

    • (1) they are most often sponsored by mental health or social service agencies or have no sponsor ;

    • (2) groups have operated an average of 8 to 9 years ;

    • (3) fewer than 10 people typically attend monthly or twice monthly meetings ;

    • (4) group experience predominantly involves sharing personal experiences ;

    • (5) leadership generally involves either trained facilitators, mental health professionals, or both ;

    • (6) most groups are open ended ;

    • (7) all social/ethnic, income, and adult age groups are served, but few children and teenagers attend ;

    • and (8) referrals come predominantly by word-of-mouth or medical and religious sources.

    Further research is required regarding survivor group attributes and processes.
