HALOS (Healing After Loved Ones Suicide)

 HALOS (Healing After Loved Ones Suicide)

After moving to Florida in December, 2004, I located the Left Behind After Suicide (LBAS) Support Group and found immediate connectedness with others there.  I want to provide such an atmosphere to others as they work through their loss and grief.  HALOS brings that desire to fruition.  I attended peer facilitation of a suicide survivor support group training offered by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention in 2006.I have received many gifts, blessings and miracles in my life.  Many I recognize now to a much greater degree since Natalie’s death.  There’s nothing good nor bad about that, it’s just how it is.  I now want to share all of my experiences and support others to bring forth their own healing, peace and serenity.

Social Anxiety Institute

Social Anxiety Institute

Dr. Thomas A. Richards currently runs all our treatment programs and is a leading clinical authority on the treatment of social anxiety disorder. Dr. Richards began seeing patients with social anxiety in the early 1990s and has seen thousands of patients since that time. The first CBT therapy group for social anxiety started in 1994. International therapy groups began in 1998.
Our emphasis is on treatment of social anxiety disorder (i.e., how do you get over it?) Our CBT therapy programs allow people to overcome social anxiety.
Cognitive behavioral therapy for social anxiety disorder must be comprehensive and cover all aspects of social anxiety. Our groups are active, structured groups that work on anti-anxiety strategies on a daily, consistent basis. Cognitive therapy includes strategies to learn how to think and believe differently about ourselves. Behavioral therapy puts the cognitive strategies into place in your daily life.

Stop Abuse for Everyone (SAFE)

Stop Abuse for Everyone (SAFE)

Stop Abuse For Everyone (SAFE) provides unique services for domestic violence victims. We help those who typically fall between the cracks of domestic violence services and few services are available: straight men, GLBT victims, teens, and the elderly. We promote that there should be services for ALL victims and accountability for all perpetrators.

Our approach is to view domestic violence as a human issue. It doesn’t matter what type of person you are, if you’re in an abusive relationship, it is the type of experience you’re having that is important!

We believe that the services you receive should be based on what you need…rather than who you are. That is the goal we work towards. Individuals experience problems based on the simple fact that they are men or women, gay or straight, old or young. SAFE addresses their individual concerns, and fills in the gaps in domestic violence services where others don’t.

Ran by Kevin Caruso, Suicide.org’s mission is to prevent suicides, support suicide survivors, and educate the public about suicide.

Suicide.org conducts extensive work online and offline to further its mission of suicide prevention, awareness, and support.  We also run an online suicide survivors’ forum, which provides a safe place for suicide survivors to receive help.

And we work to remember and honor the angels who die by suicide in as many ways as we can, including online memorials.

And we work to spread awareness about suicide in as many ways as possible.

Offline, we give presentations about suicide, run suicide awareness campaigns, help schools establish effective suicide prevention and anti-bullying strategies, visit and call suicide survivors, and assist suicidal individuals.
