Utah Homicide Survivors provides open group therapy to surviving family, friends, co-workers, and other loved ones of homicide victims free of charge.

Group therapy services for homicide survivors can be an effective way for individuals to receive support and share their experiences with others who have gone through similar situations. Group therapy sessions typically involve a small group of individuals who have all experienced the loss of a loved one due to homicide. The sessions are facilitated by a trained therapist who provides guidance and support as group members share their stories and discuss their feelings. Group therapy sessions can provide a sense of community and help to reduce feelings of isolation and loneliness that many homicide survivors experience.

Group therapy can also provide a space for individuals to learn from others' experiences, gain insight into their own grief, and develop new coping strategies. It's important to seek out group therapy services that are tailored to the unique needs of homicide survivors and to work with a therapist who is trained and experienced in this area.

In short about us.
