The Forgotten Mourners:

Group for Siblings Survivors of Suicide and Overdose Loss


10 weeks, every Tuesday evening from 6-7:30 PM

starting September 17 and ending on November 26, 2019 (skipping November 12)


Losing a sibling to an overdose or suicide has unique challenges, which are often overlooked by family, friends, and society at large. This 10-week group is for people in their 20s and 30s who have lost a sibling (half, step, full, etc.) to a drug overdose or suicide. This group creates a space for sibling survivors to support each other and help participants find meaning in life after loss.

PLEASE NOTE: all are welcome, regardless of previous experience in group and/or therapy.

FEE: $65 per session, sliding fee is limited but available upon request  

*There are 8 spots available on a first-come, first-served basis.  If you have not been a participant in the past, a 45-minute initial intake is the first step ($60).  

Facilitator: Rebecca Gerstein, LCSW has a private practice in Manhattan, where she specializes in grief and loss for people in their 20s and 30s. Her passion is to help people grow in life after loss. Rebecca is a LGBTQI* affirming, anti-racist/anti-oppressive, body positive therapist.
