Hour of Grace: (A Grief Support Group) Our goal is to give those that are left behind following a suicide a place where they can be comfortable expressing themselves, receive support, resources, and hope in a judgement-free environment.  Follow us on social media for meeting times and places. Meeting in Cheyenne and Laramie.

Stronger Together: (A Peer Support Group) This group offers a safe, non-judgmental place for people to talk about the feelings that led them to attempt suicide, have thoughts of suicide, and for those struggling with mental health concerns.   To lessen the risk factors that surround suicide and mental health, we discuss coping skills, resources, and information to offer hope in a time of need.

Caregivers Grace: (A Peer Support Group) This group gathers to support and encourage one another as caregivers to those with mental health concerns and thoughts/attempts of suicide.  Training is provided along with coping skills and resources. This group is currently paused. For more information, reach out to us at 307.256.3344.

QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer — the 3 simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide.

“Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help. Each year thousands of Americans, like you, are saying “Yes” to saving the life of a friend, colleague, sibling, or neighbor.

According to the Surgeon General’s National Strategy for Suicide Prevention (2001), a gatekeeper is someone in a position to recognize a crisis and the warning signs that someone may be contemplating suicide.

Gatekeepers can be anyone, but include parents, friends, neighbors, teachers, ministers, doctors, nurses, office supervisors, squad leaders, foremen, police officers, advisors, caseworkers, firefighters, and many others who are strategically positioned to recognize and refer someone at risk of suicide.” -QPR Institute
