Suicide Survivors Summer Retreat

Where: St. Crispin’s Retreat Facility – Wewoka, OK

The Suicide Survivors Summer Retreat is co-hosted by C.O.P.S. and Survivors of Blue Suicide Foundation. This retreat is planned for surviving parents, step-parents, siblings, grandparents and other extended family of law enforcement suicide.

How will this retreat benefit me?

You will spend the weekend bonding and receiving support from others who genuinely know how you feel, attending sessions designed for your needs, participating in activities that challenge your limits, and unwinding in a stress free environment. It is our goal for you to leave the retreat feeling relaxed with a support system of peers and knowledge to help you in the future.

What is the cost of the retreat?

Your only expense is your travel to and from the Oklahoma City Airport if you are flying or to and from St. Crispin’s Retreat Facility if you are driving. All lodging, meals and activities are provided at no cost. If you fail to cancel your attendance and you do not show up for the program, you could be subject to a participation fee for the following year’s program.

Session Examples
  • Stress Management
  • How to Cope with Suicide Loss
  • Fighting the Stigma
  • Managing Relationships
