International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day is November 18, 2017
About Survivor Day
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.
All gatherings include a screening of an AFSP-produced Survivor Day documentary about the suicide loss experience. Watch our previous films here.▲ Back to Top

Watch previous online Survivor Day events
On November 19, 2016, AFSP hosted a 90-minute online program for those who weren’t able to attend a Survivor Day event in person.
The program included a screening of the documentary Life Journeys: Reclaiming Life after Loss; a post-screening discussion on coping and healing after a suicide loss; and a Q&A with online viewers.
