For friends and family members of people who took the life of someone else before ending their own lives. Issues relating to murder-suicide complicate grief for those left behind, so the need for positive support is significant.

Does anyone know of a murder/suicide support group that meets in person? Much like Compassionate Friends or SOS (Survivors of Suicide), with local chapters? This forum is a wonderful outlet, but if I could meet with others in person who have been through murder/suicide, I think it would be a very good help.

I am not aware of any-have you checked the AFSP or SPAN sites? or contact them, they may have information on such groups.
You might try contacting a group for each and could find others that way. I wish I could be more help to you.
I see griefnet.org has an online group. Maybe joining there could help you find a group to attend in your area, worth a try ??

I see that you are in PA. I am going to send you a PM of a place near me. They might be able to help.

Look into the CAAS center...they are based in Oregon but they have information specifically for murder-suicide survivors. http://www.caascenter.org/

We have an online support group now specifically for murder-suicide survivors A Hand2Hold Murder-Suicide Support Group where you can connect with other murder-suicide survivors specifically-the group is growing and welcomes all survivors! Facebook friend me Tawna Righter and I will connect you with the private group or facebook any one of our board members at Community Awareness and Support Center www.caascenter.org
More is being done in this area-we are working on a research survey to learn the best ways to help murder-suicide survivors and welcome and encourage all murder-suicide survivors to help out by completing it. It is lengthy but the information is so critical to future assistance to survivors. Please contact us if you are interested in participating in this completely confidential survey. email@example.com
