Each year on International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day, those affected by suicide loss gather around the world to find comfort, gain understanding, and share stories of healing and hope.
This year’s Survivor Day events will feature a screening of Life Journeys: Reclaiming Life after Loss, a new documentary that traces the journey that follows a suicide loss over time.
Interested in reading about other people’s experiences following a loss? Looking for guidance on how to support a loved one? The blog posts below provide helpful advice and inspiration, while letting you know you are not alone.
AFSP has been actively involved in creating memory quilts for loss survivors for more than 20 years. We recently brought the quilt online and now have thousands of squares representing those we have lost to suicide. Below is a small sample of that quilt. Click any of the quilt squares to be taken to the quilt where you, too, can create a square in memory of a lost loved one.
