Finding hope and strength... together

Specialized services for those who have attempted or lost a loved one to suicide

Provident recognizes the unique emotional needs of those who have experience with suicide. We offer professionally-staffed services that provide caring support that encourages sharing, learning, growing, and healing.

Survivors of Suicide (S.O.S.)

The loss of a loved one to suicide is an experience unlike any other, leaving survivors with grief that is complex, intense, and difficult for others to understand. Provident has been offering S.O.S. groups for over 20 years to connect people who can help one another and provide access the knowledge of our professional staff.

There is no charge to attend these meetings and walk-ins are welcome. Contact our staff at 314-446-5158 or for more information.

      Hope After

      Individuals who have struggled with suicide need ongoing support that is often difficult to find within personal relationships. Provident’s Hope After program is there to fill that need by checking in, following up, answering questions, and providing encouragement.

      We schedule one-on-one phone calls and, through a partnership with Epharmix, use text message technology to check in as frequently as needed for a full year following a suicidal incident. This program is funded by a grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and is completely free to clients.
