WILLARD - Beginning in January, North Central Survivors of Suicide Support Group is to meet at Mercy Willard Hospital in Willard.
NCSOS is a peer-led suicide survivors support group. Each facilitator shares with the members a common bond of losing a loved one to suicide, as well as providing a consistent, long-term network of support for survivors.
NCSOS is to share experiences as survivors of suicide and provide a safe environment where members can express emotions associated with the loss. Giving professional advice or counseling services is strictly prohibited, though there will be resources available to survivors in need of professional services.
NCSOS was founded by Monica Kovacs and her daughter, Jynelle Rex, to help others suffering with the loss of loved ones after the death of their husband and father, James (Jeff) Kovacs.
The support group is to meet 7-8:30 p.m. the first and third Monday of every month, beginning Jan. 7, in Schaffer Conference Room 1 at Mercy Willard Hospital, 1100 Neal Zick Road, Willard.
A Facebook group also has been created for members at www.facebook.com/groups/NCSOS.
