Local Outreach to Suicide Survivors (LOSS)
Our LOSS team is a group of trained volunteers who provide hope, offer support, and share resources to those recently impacted by a death by suicide. This outreach involves two or more volunteers, including a suicide loss survivor, who connect the newly bereaved to services for use whenever they feel ready.

Dr. Frank Campbell
In 1998, Dr. Frank Campbell formed the first LOSS team in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The model aims to connect the bereaved to available help sooner. His work has been featured in three Discovery channel documentaries. Today, LOSS teams are running across the United States and the world.
