Parents of Suicides (POS)

Australia - New Zealand POS


We invite you to visit our memorial websites and learn about the people remembered on them: daughters, sons, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, husbands, wives, friends and others who reached a point of no return, and left.

We have two email support groups for anyone whose life has been affected by the suicide of another person. Both groups are led by volunteers; the groups don’t offer advice, and there is no charge to join them.

  • Parents of Suicides (POS)
  • Friends and Families of Suicides (FFOS)

If you’d like to join either support group, click the button above to read about the groups and to get directions on how to join.

Suicide is the anchor point on a continuum of suicidal thoughts & behaviors. This continuum is one that ranges from risk-taking behaviors at one end, extends through different degrees & types of suicidal thinking, & ends with suicide attempts and suicide.  ~ Dr. Kay Redfield Jamison

We bereaved are not alone. When it seems that our sorrow is too great to be borne, let us think of the great family of the heavy hearted into which our grief has given us entrance and inevitably, we will feel about us their arms, their sympathy, their understanding. ~ Helen Keller
