In 1997, Dr. Frank Campbell, who at the time was the President of the American Association of Suicidology, developed the Active Postvention Model which became known as LOSS Teams in 1998. Since then, LOSS Teams have been developed across the globe in diverse communities.
In 2013, the Ohio Suicide Prevention Foundation hosted the National LOSS Conference. It was at this conference that LOSS Community Services Founder, Denise Meine-Graham, met Dr. Frank Campbell and learned more about the importance of immediate peer support for loss survivors. Denise and a few other amazing volunteers went to work and launched the Columbus LOSS Team in 2014. And as they say… the rest is history!
