Registration details to come

If you have any questions about the summit, please email Kate Silverberg, AFSP's Senior Manager, Loss Survivor Events, at [email protected].

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.

The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) invites you to submit a proposal to share your experiences and expertise related to suicide loss, bereavement, and the long-term healing process at our conference for long-term loss survivors. Presenting at this conference provides you with an opportunity to connect, educate, and empower suicide loss survivors at a unique point in their healing journeys. This is a specialized event that gives longer-term loss survivors the space to revisit their grief experience and its impact on their lives. Please use the following link for more information and to submit your proposal. Proposals will be accepted July 24 - August 28.
