The Long-Term Journey of Healing from Suicide Loss

I joined the “survivor of suicide loss club” on November 10, 1988. I was a junior at the University of Maryland and my family lived in Cleveland. I got the phone call that would forever change my life. My brother, Brian, had taken his life at 23 years old.

Living Our Story: AFSP's Long-Term Survivors of Suicide Loss Summit 2022

This is the only conference of its kind, geared for long-term loss survivors who have found healthy ways to integrate the experience of losing a loved one to suicide into their lives. The conference featured workshops, expert-led discussions and social activities exploring how grief evolves over time.

Zak Williams Reflects on the Loss of His Father, Robin Williams, and His Role in AFSP's Long-term Loss Summit

This is the only conference of its kind, best suited for long-term loss survivors who have found healthy ways to integrate the experience of losing a loved one to suicide into their lives. The conference features workshops, expert-led discussions, and social activities exploring how grief evolves over time.

While it can be challenging to define long-term loss survivors solely in terms of time since their loss, most attendees of this conference will be five or more years beyond the date of their loved one’s suicide. Those suicide loss survivors who have engaged in support groups, counseling or other coping strategies will learn ways to increase their support, connect with other long-term loss survivors, and find ways to further understand their loss as a part of their life’s journey.

Presentations focus on the needs of long-term survivors through a variety of mediums and include insight from leading clinicians in the field of suicide loss.
