What is SOPROXI?

SOPROXI is a non-governmental, non-profit, voluntary organization, which started operating in 2006 at the Department of Mental Health of Padova, in the North-East of Italy. The project has rapidly grown and now operates on a nationwide basis in Italy. SOPROXI aims to promote the psychological well-being of and provide specialized support to relatives, friends and anyone else who has lost a significant other by suicide. Our aim is to help survivors cope with this traumatic experience through the bereavement process, and give them the opportunity to “meet” professionals and peers who have had the same experience. An additional goal of SOPROXI is to build knowledge and awareness of suicidal risk factors and suicidal behaviour and to contribute to suicide prevention.

Who are we?

We are a group of psychiatrists, psychologists, psychotherapists, survivors and students working in related fields. We co-operate with SOPROXI on a voluntary basis. We have previous professional experience with suicidal patients and survivors, and all believe that preventing and surviving suicide is possible! New members are welcome to join us!
