About Our Organization

Blue River LOSS (Local Outreach to Suicide Survivors) Team serves the Gage/Jefferson Counties area. The purpose of LOSS Team is to provide support and resources for survivors of suicide, as well as an installation of hope, to survivors as close to the time of their loss as possible. We are here to provide postvention support (following the loss) and resources to bereaved loved ones when one is ready to find help.

The Local Outreach to Suicide Survivors (LOSS) Team consists of trained and mental health professionals acting as volunteers to bring immediate support to survivors of suicide. Suicide survivors are those persons who have had a loved one complete a suicide and are at risk due to their emotional response, which may include the use of unhealthy coping strategies or attempting suicide themselves.

The LOSS Team is activated by first response officials (law enforcement, EMS, etc.) when a suicide occurs to provide resources, support, and hope to suicide survivors. The volunteers provide assistance to survivors to help them cope with the trauma of their loss, provide follow-up contact with the survivors, and coordinate the utilization of services and support groups within the community.

Current Project: Community Outreach

Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, our community is in even more need of support and mental health awareness. This year we want to reach more people with our message by being more visible. With the proceeds, we want to increase the community's awareness of our mission. We also use the money raised to share resources such as books for adults, teens, and children with suicide loss survivors. Saturday November 20, 2021 is International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day and we plan to have an event to recognize those who have been impacted by suicide.
