November 18 – International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day
It’s a day where people who’ve suffered loss due to suicide can get together, organized by the AFSP.
From their website:
Survivor Day is the one day a year when people affected by suicide loss gather around the world at events in their local communities to find comfort and gain understanding as they share stories of healing and hope. In 2016, there were over 350 Survivor Day events in 18 countries.
This year, all gatherings will include a screening of The Journey: A Story of Healing and Hope, a compelling AFSP-produced documentary about the suicide loss experience, as well the new follow-up featurette, The Journey Revisited, in which six of the original Journey participants gather three years later to reflect on how their grief and healing journey is evolving.
Check and see if there’s an event you can attend in person, or get the information about the virtual event as well. Sounds like it could be a good resource for any of you who have lost someone. If you’ve been to one before, I’d love to hear your comments, or if you go this year, be sure to come back and tell us about it.
