Support Group for Parents of Suicidal Children

A new support group for parents caring for children with suicidal thoughts and behaviors will have its first meeting on Monday, August 21, 2017 from 7pm-8:30pm. This meeting will be held at the Washtenaw Intermediate School District (WISD) building located at 1819 South Wagner Road, Ann Arbor, MI 48103.

This new support group will be led by trained National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) volunteers, and is a collaborative effort with NAMI Washtenaw County, Washtenaw County Public Health, Community Mental Health, University of Michigan Depression Center and the WISD.

Please note that participants will be the parents or guardians of children (middle-school aged to 25 years old) who are currently exhibiting suicidal thoughts or behaviors, or have done so in the recent past.

Please contact Alison Paine, NAMIWC at alisonpaine21@hotmail.com with additional questions.

AADL has a number of books related to this topic, as well as occasional events for those going through the grieving process.
