After the double suicide of my father and step-mother, I attended The Joy in the Mourning Center, specifically the grief recovery program for those who have lost a loved one to suicide. This program gave me the skills and support to move on through a healthy grief after the most devastating event of my life. I have made life long friends that have an understanding of me that no one else could have. I will be forever grateful. I am so thankful that we have this center in our community to help people hurting from loss.

When my wife passed away, a friend of ours recommended attending Joy in the Mourning group sessions. The counselors and fellow group members helped me in dealing with a tragic loss. I was able to take the necessary steps with their guidance to return to the joy of living. — R.C. , Columbia, SC
