Suicide as a Language of Pain...SLOP

SLOP allows us to, “Just talk about it.” Many of us have learned to keep our experiences hidden from others trying to “fix us” or “force us” with medication or  hospitalization. As a result, we feel alone, with no one we can trust. Since we can’t just talk about it, our pain has nowhere to go.

There is no age restriction for SLOP and no one will be turned away. For more information about SLOP or if you have any questions contact:
