Meet-Up for Survivors of Murder-Suicide Loss
You are not alone. After murder-suicide loss survivors may feel isolated and stigmatized. This peer-led group was founded to provide hope and collectively support each other through this rare type of loss which, unfortunately, is an everyday occurrence in the United States. They welcome
all survivors of murder-suicide loss, regardless of their relationship to those
who died. They emphasize welcoming all kinds of survivors of this type of loss
as they understand, for many people, you cannot “choose sides.” The loss of multiple people after this type of suicide loss is incredibly complex to navigate. Survivors include, but are not limited to, the following circumstances: sibling and/or step-sibling loss, parental and/or step-parental loss, child or step-child loss, spouse, ex-spouse, partner or ex-partner loss, in-law loss, friend loss, witnesses of murder-suicide with or without direct connections to the victim and/or perpetrator, and attempted murder-suicide survivors. This peer led
group is a hybrid traditional support group and action group.
They welcome those interested in either, or both. Their 90 minute format
is conveniently divided to accommodate attendees with interests in
traditional support and/or advocacy.
Brittany Noble McCarthy and Sara Cobb are survivors of murder-suicide loss and the co-founders of this unique support network which launched in 2020 and today has connected survivors across the country.
The group meets every other Friday via Zoom at 5:00 PM PST/8:00 PM EST.
Contact Brittany at firstname.lastname@example.org or
Sara at email@example.com if you would like more information. They ask all attendees to complete an initial phone or video
call with one of the group leaders to ensure the environment is a good fit
and to ensure the safety and privacy of all group members.
Prerequisites for group participation:
- Must be 18 years of age or older
- Must be currently in professional counseling/therapy, actively
seeking professional counseling/therapy, or have a willingness to
professional counseling/therapy in the future
- Must be willing to share contact information with the group leads
for emergency use only

Survivors of Murder-Suicide Loss Share How You Can Help Support
Check out the terrific new post on Brittany Noble McCarthy's blog,
"Survivors of Murder-Suicide Loss Share How You Can Help Support," at
Brittany Noble McCarthy is a writer and advocate for two largely misunderstood areas: the life of military
families and survivors of murder-suicide loss. In addition to pieces published with the Tragedy Assistance
Program for Survivors (TAPS) and The Kentucky Derby Museum. Brittany is the co-founder of a
murder-suicide loss support group, along with fellow survivor My Grief Connection founder Sara J. Cobb,

This new post was co-written by several murder-suicide loss survivors, including Brittany & Sara,
with the intent of helping educate those in survivors’ support systems. In it, they share what would
have been most helpful – and what was not helpful – after their initial loss. They have joined in a
single voice that they hope reflects anyone who has experienced the tragic loss of a loved one to
murder-suicide or any sensationalized, traumatic loss. They cannot and do not speak for all survivors,
but if you are a survivor of murder-suicide loss, they hope you know you are not alone.
If you are a survivor of murder-suicide loss and are interested in connecting with other survivors for
support and/or direction to resources, please reach out to either Brittany or Sara via email for
information about their Survivors of Murder-Suicide Loss Virtual Support Group. This private support
group meets twice monthly via Zoom to share our stories, encourage and support one another.
