Thousands of survivors of suicide loss will gather together around the world on this day of healing, support, and empowerment. These gatherings will bring local people together to connect with others who have lost a friend, family member or co-worker to suicide, and who understand the powerful and troubling emotions they experience. If you have lost someone in your life to suicide or have been affected by suicide, please join us.
Hundreds of local conference sites will simultaneously watch a 90-minute broadcast produced by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. On this broadcast, a diverse panel of survivors and mental health professionals will address the questions that so many survivors face. “Why did this happen? How can I cope? Where can I find support?”
You may also watch the webcast online from your home by registering through www.afsp.org.
