At Solara Mental Health, we understand not only the serious nature of suicidal thoughts and behaviors, but also the stigma that surrounds them. In Solara’s suicide resilience group, group members come together as compassionate, understanding peers, fostering an environment of safety, nonjudgment and kindness. In this space, veterans can talk openly about the difficult emotions that contribute to their suicidality, free from stigma.
In addition to open discussion of emotions and struggles, one of our expert clinicians will lead group members in exercises in developing greater perseverance, flexibility, curiosity, mindfulness, gratitude and self-compassion. As veterans learn these techniques, they develop increased emotional resilience. The group clinician at our mental health treatment center will also use discussions to de-stigmatize suicidality and provide veterans with effective methods for lessening risk factors and triggers, helping veterans develop lasting inner strength, peace and wellness.
