Have you lost a loved one to suicide? You are not alone.

The Finnish non-profit organisation Surunauha ry (Eng. ”Grief Ribbon”) was founded in 1997. Our mission is to support those who have lost loved ones to suicide. We also want to promote open discussion about the matter to reduce prejudice and stigma related to suicide.

Our activities are based on volunteer peer support. We offer support groups across the country. The groups provide a safe and confidential environment to meet others facing the same situation. The group leaders are also peers who have lost loved ones to suicide. We regularly train our supporting volunteers and provide them with work counselling.

We also have a message board, a peer support telephone, and we annually organise a nationwide peer support weekend, Vesova.

Our services are mainly in Finnish, but in Vaasa we also have some functions in Swedish.

If you are interested in receiving peer support in English, or some other language other than Finnish or Swedish, after a loved one’s suicide, please leave your contact information here. We will contact you as soon as peer support in your preferred language is available. Your information will be retained until the end of the current year.
