Mission Statement

As survivors of suicide we believe sharing our personal stories will begin our journey to a place of healing and help others to heal.

History of SOS Albuquerque

Founded in 1978 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Survivors of Suicide Loss, is a volunteer support group that serves the needs of people suffering the loss of someone they love by suicide.


We hold six meetings every month  ( two are moms groups), that are free and open to all. SOS hosts presentations and discussions that are relevant to survivors of suicide throughout the Albuquerque area.


SOS meetings are attended by both recent and long-time survivors, all of whom benefit from the sharing of experiences and approaches to the loss through suicide.


In addition to the survivors, the meetings are also frequently attended by mental health professionals who offer their various perspectives on unexpected death, grief and bereavement, guilt, responsibility, and mourning.


Survivors of Suicide Inc. is a nonprofit, nonsectarian, self-help support group system for those who have lost a relative or friend through suicide. The Survivors of Suicide volunteers are dedicated to providing information and support to assist in the grieving and healing process. It is a support group of people who help one another through the stages of grieving.


We share feelings of guilt, anger frustration, emptiness, loneliness, and disillusionment. For some, it is hard to identify or even to understand their feelings. Through others’ expression of what they are feeling, we begin to have a better awareness of what is going on inside us.
