FAMILY SURVIVORS OF SUICIDE is a self - help group in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, dedicated to helping those who have lost loved ones to suicide. It was founded on February 11, 1988, at the McGill School of Social Work, by four members of different families who had each lost a family member to suicide. Meetings, attended over the years by more than 3,500 people, are conducted by the members themselves.

Membership in FAMILY SURVIVORS OF SUICIDE is open to anyone who has lost a loved one to suicide. There are no memberships fees. After attending a first meeting, all those interested are invited to add their names to our mailing list and to attend future meetings.

FAMILY SURVIVORS OF SUICIDE can be a positive support to individual or family therapy. A safe, confidential and non judgemental place to share with others.

FSOS offers emotional support on overcoming the feelings and fear that follow in the wake of suicide. It helps survivors to understand the past and lighten the way to a new future.
