International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day 2019: Lawrence, KS
First United Methodist Church of Lawrence, KS
Lawrence, Kansas 66044
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.
Our annual Lawrence, KS International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day 11/23/2019 community workshop will be a safe space for people with loved ones who have died by suicide, those who would like to learn how to be helpful to those bereaved by suicide, and for those bereaved by suicide who are also survivors of suicide thoughts and attempts, and/or supporting suicidal loved ones. Our workshop will include: light snacks, time for remembering and honoring our loved ones, materials for writing and art activities to do at one’s table, discussion time, and resources for support.
