We are the Survivors of Loved Ones' Suicides, a peer-led, non-denominational support group located in San Antonio, Texas. We're dedicated to helping each other and ourselves work through the emotional turmoil caused by the death of a loved one, friend, or associate to suicide.
More than 33,000 people are lost each year to suicide in the United States. Countless thousands more are left behind to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives while trying to cope with the tragic loss of a loved one to suicide. This is where SOLOS can help.
