Program Description: Survivor Support Services provide education, information, support, referral and follow-up care those who have recently experienced the loss of someone to suicide and those who have attempted suicide and may be suffering from depression, in an effort to reduce the incidence of suicide attempts and the development of mental health disorders.
The program serves all ages, and individuals can be self-referred or referred by partner agencies. For children, adolescents and adults who are coping with the loss of someone to suicide, the program provides individual counseling. Short-term bereavement counseling can also be provided to a family to improve their functioning and communication after the loss of a family member. In addition to counseling, the program offers bereavement groups and closed groups that provide a safe, non-judgmental place for people who have survived a suicide attempt to talk about the feelings that led them to attempt suicide.
Eligibility: Orange County residents, who attempted suicide and the family members/loved ones of those who have experienced the loss of someone to suicide.
Language(s): English, Spanish, and Korean.
Hours of Operation: Administration: 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday – Friday and by appointment (group and/or individual hours are determined by participating members)
Making Orange County a safe, healthy, and fulfilling place to live, work, and play, today and for generations to come, by providing outstanding, cost-effective regional public services.
