Triangle Survivors of Suicide is committed to supporting families and friends deal with the intense grief in the aftermath of the suicide of a loved one.

 

"On September 16, 2003, I lost my father to suicide. On December 11, 2007, I lost my mother to suicide. By not dealing with their deaths and trying to push the pain away, I allowed myself to be engulfed by emptiness, despair, and darkness for nearly two years. 

Triangle SOS was the beacon of light that helped me come to terms with their deaths, and more importantly, with myself. I credit this organization with helping me make peace with myself, and being the pivot point in my life that made life enjoyable again." -- Matt Sammis, member of Triangle SOS

 

Our Mission

It’s a two way street. When we help others, we often help ourselves.
