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.
Our 2020/2021 project is to increase awareness in Gage and Jefferson counties about suicide prevention. Our plan is to be more visible in our communities via prominent ads, a billboard sign, and sponsoring a Suicide Prevention movie at the Community Players in Beatrice. We want to promote positivity in our communities and to instill a feeling of hope.
The Blue Rivers LOSS Team was established in 2018. Raised funds go to purchase resources for suicide survivors and to promote suicide prevention events in the Gage/Jefferson County areas.
