    Regularly scheduled meetings on the 4th TUESDAY of each month except December (no meeting in December).

    NEXT MEETING, Tuesday
    January 28, 2020
    at 6:30pm

    IF Cape Breton-Victoria Schools are cancelled due to weather on a meeting day, there will be NO meeting that evening for safety's sake.


    "Time heals all wounds" is not necessarily true for survivors of suicide. Time is necessary for healing, but time is not enough. Shared feelings enrich and lead to growth and healing. It is helpful to know we are not alone. It is helpful to see others who are farther into their journey than we, and have survived.

    ...and my story becomes yours as we struggle through the pain. In our circle, we remember their names. We have daydreams of the future about how we thought it might be, with regrets of conversations that might have been the key.

    We are angry and confused as we struggle for our breath. Our hearts cry out in anger in what has been labeled a senseless death.

    We have good days and bad days, and without a trace, in our circle, tears and smiles meet as we gather strength together.

    Sons and daughters, husbands and wives, brothers and sisters and friendships felt deep in our souls, memories and moments left clinging to us, and questions of how to survive this and how to let go.

    About Us, Our meeting dates & location

    The S.O.S. group in Cape Breton is a self-help group that was developed to provide individuals and families who have suffered a loss of a loved one with a critical resource. The intent is to allow survivors to help each other through shared stories, memories and coping skills. We are not trained counselors. We are survivors who choose to be present to others to provide hope & share resources that promote healing.

    If you would like to attend one of our meetings we would be glad to have you. We ask that the group members respect the anonymity of others at the meetings, and that we are respectful of others' coping strategies. What goes on in the group, stays in the group.

    We will be having our regularly scheduled meetings on the 4th TUESDAY of each month.

    Meeting Location:
    188 George Street, Sydney
