Estelle Hopmeyer Director, McGill Centre for Loss and Bereavement

Family Survivors of Suicide

www.suicideaftermath.com [cached]

Her journey from grieving mother to political activist began with a group that was founded by McGill Social Work professor Estelle Hopmeyer.

Called Family Survivors of Suicide (FSOS), the self-help group is open-ended. Anyone who has lost a loved one to suicide can come and meet with others who are dealing with the same loss. Twice a year, FSOS holds an open meeting, where members of the public are invited to a talk.
"The primary goal is to talk about suicide [and] to make this a more open topic," said Hopmeyer of the September 19 event at which Vineberg spoke.
"The other goal, for survivors of suicide was to see Phyllis's journey and her courage -- to see that there is life after a suicide."
Hopemeyer explained that suicide is difficult to deal with for survivors, in part because it is so stigmatized -- grieving family members are often blamed for not seeing that a person was going to take their own life. In the 14 years that Hopmeyer has served as a consultant to FSOS, she estimates a staggering 2000 people have attended the twice-monthly meetings in the School of Social Work.
For information on this or other bereavement groups offered at the McGill Centre for Loss and Bereavement please call Estelle Hopmeyer at 398-7067.
