LOSS Team (Local Outreach to Suicide Survivors)
The LOSS Team is a group of volunteers contacted by the County Coroner’s Office that respond to the scene of a suicide or other traumatic deaths to provide information about local resources and be an installation of hope for the newly bereaved. The primary goal of the team is to let survivors know what resources exist to support them following the death of their loved one. The LOSS Team is NOT a therapy or clinical service. The Team is there to listen to you, support you, and provide valuable information about what you may encounter next. For more information contact the Ashtabula County Mental Health and Recovery Services Board at 440-992-3121 or https://www.ashtabulamhrs.org.
