We are looking forward to seeing you at the Dallas International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day event. Here is a link to directions for the Texas Health Presbyterian campus: https://www.texashealth.org/dallas/patients-and-visitors/maps-and-directions. Our event is held in the Fogelson Auditorium towards the northwest side of the campus. Note there is no charge for the event but the facility does charge $2 for parking. The Dallas Light Rail provides convenient service if you prefer public transportation.
In the interest of creating a safe space for loss survivors, most events are specific to survivors of suicide loss. In addition, many events cannot accommodate children and teens. If you have any questions, please contact the event host directly.
Each year, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention supports hundreds of large and small Survivor Day events around the world, in which suicide loss survivors come together to find connection, understanding and hope through their shared experience. While each event is unique and offers various programming, all feature an AFSP-produced documentary that offers a message of growth, resilience and connection.
As we have in the past, we will have a ‘Gifts and Gratitude Wall’ where you may post a picture of your loved one, and we will conclude the event with a slide show of photos. If you wish to have a photo or photos included in the slide show, please email it to me ([email protected]). Please let me know if you would also like for me to make a 5×7 print for you to use on the Wall; you will take any pictures you bring or any I print home with you after the event. We will begin and end in the Auditorium, but will be in other locations in the building for lunch and break-out groups. Please bring a jacket or light sweater as some of the rooms may be chilly.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you for your interest in this event.
