This volunteer would be a part of the first response team known as the L.O.S.S. (Local Outreach to Suicide Survivors) Team that responds with law enforcement in Pennington and Meade County to help survivors who have just lost their loved one to suicide.
Volunteers provide help and support to those who have just experienced that tragic and traumatic loss. They provide hope, resources in the community for ongoing help, mental health care, and grieving support services.
Volunteers are on call to respond day or night as a team and share that common bond of being a suicide survivor, one who has lost someone to suicide and can make that connection of hope and support during that time.
For more information, call 605-348-6692.
